So, you may be wondering, what does this Burke guy have up his sleeve? Simply put, LOTS!  This year has been incredible for Wump Mucket Puppets. We have several great performances booked from September through December (check out our Performance Schedule here).

In addition to our live shows we are creating a short video for our favorite pizza shop, Northside’s one and only NYPD Pizza!  Puppets taking about pizza, what more could you ask for? This video project will be used to help promote NYPD’s new on-line ordering system. Coleman is very excited that he can now order pizza in just a few clicks! The video is in the pre-production stage right now as the script and storyboard get a few tweaks. We hope to have it completed soon and will share it with you over a slice of NYPD’s delicious pizza as soon as it ready -the video that is, not their pizza. Now there’s an idea! A Puppet Pizza Party! We’ll have to check into that and make sure that all the puppets can attend such a gala event. Would you attend? Let us now so we can start taking reservations.

Speaking of video, we have an second video project in the works that has been shot, and even given a very rough edit. Without spilling too many beans, we’ll let you know that the short video will be sent out to Cincinnati media outlets as a preview for an even grander production in 2012. Since we love to tease, we’ll give you a tiny clue: 2012 is an election year. Still curious? Good, keep checking back here at the official blog of the Wump Mucket Puppets.
