Paul Andrejco knows puppets inside and out. The South Orange resident and president Puppet Heap Workship in Hoboken, not only crafted Walter, the newest Muppet in town, but will show and tell his own puppets at Sparkhouse Kids on Sunday at 3 p.m.
Puppet Heap's line of hand puppets includes Mother Hubbard, Toby (her dog), Lucy (the cat and the fiddle), The Constable, The Doctor and the Cabby. These characters live in the town of Spudbottom. Their story will be told in two short films, Mother Hubbard and There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, which will be shown on Sunday.
The Spudbottom hand puppets are available at Sparkhouse, and Andrejco will sign those sold on Sunday.
