Hughes, President Nashville Public Library Board Keith B. Simmons, Library Board Chairman Lucy D. Haynes Francie M. Hunt Robert K. Oermann Margaret Ann Robinson Jessie Garcia Van De Griek Joyce Searcy With the 2013 Nashville International Puppet Festival under way, we want to share our gratitude for those who have made the event possible by donating time or money. While we could not ask for a better lineup or more talented performers, more creative workshops or more beautiful music, the benefits of the festival extend well beyond the puppet shows. The puppet festival brings people of all backgrounds together for the weekend, and we re honored to provide the backdrop for this vibrant international event. We would especially like to thank our lead sponsors and underwriters: the Junior League of Nashville, Japan Foundation of New York, Judy and Steve Turner, Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Tennessee Performing Arts Center, and the Nashville Public Library Foundation. Without their support, we would not be able to offer the festival free of charge, and for that we re extremely grateful. We also would like to recognize the countless hours of work contributed by the Nashville Public Library and Nashville Public Library Foundation staff and board members who have been planning the event for close to a year to ensure a fabulous weekend for all to enjoy. The tradition of puppetry is not new to the Nashville Public Library. It all started in 1938 with a 15-year-old boy named Tom Tichenor with a limitless imagination. He is responsible for introducing puppet shows to the Library, a legacy that continues today with Wishing Chair Productions. Along the way, Tichenor s puppet shows at the Nashville Public Library touched generations of Nashvillians over a span of five decades. It was a result of his vision that the Nashville Public Library and the Foundation are able to host an event celebrating the ancient craft of puppetry. Building upon Tichenor s tradition, we continue to introduce new and exciting elements to the festival. This year, we are proud to have partnered with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and Tennessee Performing Arts Center to offer even more extensive programs, in addition to a downtown parade. We are always thinking of ways to make the festival new and engaging. We hope you find this weekend s festival entertaining and inspiring. Sincerely, Kent Oliver Director Nashville Public Library Tari P. Hughes President Nashville Public Library Foundation 1

5 About Puppetry at the Nashville Public Library This year marks the 75 th anniversary of the Nashville Public Library s marionette tradition. It all began in 1938 when an enthusiastic and talented 15-year-old boy named Tom Tichenor staged an original marionette version of the classic Puss in Boots for children at the Library. Since that initial performance, countless shows have been staged at the Library, including those by Tichenor and the Library s current staff of three full-time performers, led by Brian Hull and known collectively as Wishing Chair Productions. Wishing Chair Productions generally stages four or five different shows each year that run for about two to three months each. Tichenor s association with the Library, as both volunteer and staff member, spanned 50 years. From his nationally televised Poindexter series and his outstanding work with the Circle Players and the Nashville Children s Theatre to his stunning contribution of puppetry in the Broadway musical Carnival! Tichenor s professional career was exciting and varied. In 1967, after the completion of his daily children s program Birthday House, broadcast on WNBC-TV in New York, Tichenor returned home to the Nashville Public Library. By the time of his retirement in 1988, he had marked 50 years of enchantment and was a much-loved figure to generations of audiences who treasured his marionette shows. Wishing Chair Productions is proud to preserve Tichenor s memory through the continued use of the nearly 250 marionettes and puppets Tichenor created. Combined with the more than 70 marionettes created by Billie Logan and Elly Reed of Wisconsin, Nashville s downtown Main Library has nearly 350 puppets in its collection. This year s Puppet Festival will also serve as the background for the debut of Wishing Chair Productions very own String City: Nashville s Tradition of Music and Puppetry, a performance that tracks Nashville s history of country music through puppet versions of everyone s favorite past and present country music stars. 4

12 specialevents... String City: Nashville s Tradition of Music and Puppetry presented by the Country MusicHallofFame and Museum Many of country music s most impactful artists, from early musical architects to contemporary superstars, performed together on the Ford Theater stage earlier this week in a manner of speaking: The world premiere of String City: Nashville s Tradition of Music and Puppetry, a colorful telling of the history of country music in Nashville, took place June 20 at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. An hourlong history of country music with an emphasis on Nashville s transformation into Music City, this original program was made possible by a partnership between the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and Nashville Public Library and Foundation. The performance helped launch the 2013 Nashville International Puppet Festival. String City is the largest production the Nashville Public Library has ever undertaken. Each of the nearly three dozen artists featured in the narrative is represented by a puppet doppelganger. After its debut at the museum, String City will continue to be performed at the Nashville Public Library, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, local schools, special events, festivals, and abroad. Martinis& Marionettes presented by the Tennessee Performing Arts Center Emmy award-winning puppeteer Phillip Huber will bring figures of cloth and wood to life during a special performance of Suspended Animation at TPAC as part of the Nashville International Puppet Festival. TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE Huber is in full view of the audience as he controls incredibly compelling characters through a series of variety vignettes revealing humor, pathos, drama and grace. Huber s marionettes will mimic classic vaudeville turns, acts styled after the finest worldwide circus tradition, instrumentalists, portraits of celebrities and witty contemporary performers. Each marionette personality is developed through detailed, highly refined characterizations, carefully choreographed interplay between puppeteer and puppet, as well as tour de force manipulation. Fantasy is imbued with a sense of reality; imagination becomes real-time animation. Martinis & Marionettes will begin with a drinks and hors d oeuvres reception at 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 22, with Huber s performance appearing on TPAC s Johnson Theater shortly thereafter. Tickets are $30 and are available at nashvillepuppetfestival.com. 11
