Last summer, the coolest thing happened when my book Demon Keeper went live. Thanks to the vision of Deb Currier, a theater professor at Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA (where I live), the story came to life as a full stage children’s theater production called Monster Keeper. The play featured a 30+ person cast including life-sized muppet style puppets, special effects and an amazing set. Since Deb’s so smart, she videotaped all three performances which have been edited into a complete version of the show. Deb has also created a documentary on the making of Monster Keeper.
But wait! That’s not all! Now she plans to hold a screening of both the play and the documentary. She’s even going to set up a museum in the WWU Performing Arts Lobby with props, artwork and puppets from the show. If you go, you can meet the actors, take pictures with the puppets from the play and get autographs.
The event is Sunday, February 15th starting at 2pm. Here’s a link to all of the details.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the Summer Youth Theatre Institute at Western Washington University, which Deb pours her heart and soul into every summer to introduce kids of all ages to the magic of the stage. My kids participated in the program for a number of years and loved it.
