For those of you that have never heard of Woodend, you are not alone! It's a rather small Victorian community, about 55 minutes north of Melbourne. Sue Blakey is a very active puppeteer in Woodend, who is putting together the first Woodend Puppet Theatre Festival, along with the local community. The festival will run from 5 to 7 May 2006, just preceding the puppet summit in Tasmania. Puppeteers interested in performing or holding workshops can contact Suefor further information!
