Actress for Footsie Comedy

I am a college student putting together a short comedy film about a wealthy young man interviewing a cleaning woman. What she doesn't know is he's on a medication for his legs that numbs them and equally he doesn't realize that each time he stretches his legs he is accidentally playing footsie with her. A fun little piece about miscommunication. The lead female character is approx. 20 years in age and a very eager and ambitions character, but also made very unsteady and uncomfortable over the course of the film.

Request for Applicants: Puppet Lab PDX begins next Cycle in August

Hi all! We've had a great time working with a variety of theatre artists over the past few years in the Lab. Interested? See how to apply below! Curious? Ask me questions! Applications due June 30.

Tony Fuemmeler

Coordinator, Puppet Lab PDX

About Puppet Lab PDX

Puppet Lab PDX aims to promote the creation of engaging puppet performances for a variety of audiences and to foster the development of a vibrant puppetry community. The Lab does this by providing the resources of space for workshop performances, professional experience in puppet construction and performance, and peer-based information sharing.

As performance in front of an audience is the true test of any work, participation in the Lab will conclude in a public sharing of your work in progress.

Puppet Lab PDX is coordinated by Tony Fuemmeler and Nancy Aldrich in partnership with Tears of Joy Theatre. The Lab meets on a bi-monthly basis.

To Apply:

Please include the following in your application.

1. Current Resume

2. Artist Statement (200 words or less)

3. Describe your puppetry experience. Please include the types of puppets which you have experience manipulating and/or constructing.

4. Have you created your own show before? Have you participated in the creation of original work before? Describe.

5. Describe the show you’d like to develop through participation in the Lab. Have you begun working on this show already? At what stage are you in your process? Do you have a cast in mind? Include your ideas about theme, characters, arc, preferred venue, intended audience, etc.

6. The performance space in the Lab is roughly 20’ x 20’ x 12’ h. Can your show—as you
intend it—fit in this space?

7. Please include a visual—a sketch, a rendering, or an inspirational image… something that communicates your goals for the show in a visual medium.

Who Should Apply

The Lab is intended to for artists who would like to develop a new puppet show and would profit from the discussion and constructive critique the Lab can offer. Some puppetry experience is preferred. Show proposals should be in the scope of 10-60 minutes in length. Puppet shows already under construction and projects workshopped in previous cycles of the Lab are also eligible for consideration.

Puppet: Includes marionettes, hand puppets, found objects, shadow puppets, body-masks, rod puppets, backpack puppets, bunraku puppets, toy theatre, and more.

Puppet Show: Includes performance which utilizes puppets as the primary—but not necessarily the only—vehicle for the expression of content.


The Lab does not assess a charge for participation. The only cost to participants is that of their commitment to their own project and to the dates on which they are scheduled to share their works-in-progress. All costs related to the creation and building of the show are the responsibility of the individual participant. However, this year we are partnering with SCRAP (, who will provide a modest credit account in their resale store for Lab participants.


Participants in the Lab should be ready to commit to this process for the duration of the Lab Cycle (Aug 1 – Dec 5). The development timeline in the Lab is purposefully scheduled to allow for the gestation of ideas, the evolution of the show’s content and technical elements, and the honing of performance through multiple iterations of performance work.

Though all aspects of creating a show are important, we focus on puppetry work in our lab sessions—we will not have script meetings, production calendar templates, or a list of producers. We are confident you can figure that out elsewhere. We will focus on the construction and performance of puppets.


The first Meeting will include a discussion of overall scope of project including staging, script/storyboards, construction materials, etc. The exact schedule of events in subsequent meetings will be determined as best fits the participants, but will include either progress updates or showings of work-in-progress by each participant. As time and interest allow, we may also schedule informal and optional Puppet Movie Nights, Brainstorm Sessions on Materials & Vendors, Festival Booking Opportunities, etc.
