Mexican puppetry focus of free UA events

Citizen Staff Writer

Larger than life, big-head-style puppets are coming to the University of Arizona.

Tucson Puppet Works will join the Arizona State Museum for two events celebrating the Mexican tradition of puppetry.

• “Mexican Puppets: Entertainers Building a Nation with Laughter” is at 7 p.m. Friday.

UA history professor William H. Beezley will talk about the history of Mexican puppet performances. Tucson Puppet Works will perform after his talk.

• “Puppet Play” is at 1 p.m. Saturday.

Children will be able to make puppets and masks and watch the bilingual Tucson Puppet Works performance, “A New Spoon for Every Bite.”

Both events are free and will be held at the Arizona State Museum, 1013 E. University Blvd.



Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
