The Felt Show is a locally based live puppet show featuring sketch comedy. The troupe's original puppets frequently find themselves in situations Kermit and Elmo wouldn't be caught dead in: settings such as Hell, turnpike bathrooms, tv news studios, and trailer homes. The show has evolved from a one-man street act to a full presentation with a stage, multiple skits, original characters, sound effects, lighting, and live band. With a cast of two dozen character puppets and thirty-odd humans supporting them, The Felt Show will also produce a series of original online shorts in the upcoming year.
