For thousands of years, man has manipulated puppets for a variety of reasons: religion, education, and entertainment. One of the oldest and most wonderful forms of puppetry is shadow puppetry. People don’t recognize Jim Napolitano even though he has been broadcast to millions of television sets nationwide. That’s because he’s a puppeteer. He’s performed for the PBS show Between the Lions, Disney’s The Book of Pooh and Nickelodeon in A Show of Hands. His puppetry has taken him across the country and around the globe. No charge.
