"Bob Conrad opened our new season at the Puppet Playhouse, with his production " Puppets from around the
World" , last Sunday.
When Bob performs, our audiences are responsive and involved. His manner is relaxed, and informal.
Bob is a consummate professional. The variety of programs he offers is unique, in my experience.
In fact, we look forward to having him do a different program for us, next spring!"
