Thank you to Jeff Tessier for including Studio Babette in his portfolio of Hamilton artists in their work spaces.
Here's a link to our photo, taken backstage when we performed Where Are You Cinderella? for the 2015 Hamilton Fringe Festival at the Theatre Aquarius Studio. Many thanks also to HA&L for showcasing the portfolio.
Studio Babette has amassed a rather large collection of puppets over the years. Many of them were made by us for shows; others are puppets, some historic, which were picked up in our travels. This collection is available for display. Here is a sample of them, with more added all the time.
