Maxed Out at Utah’s Hogle Zoo


On Saturday August 8th Maxed Out Puppetry participated in the annual “Teddy Bear Picnic” at Utah’s Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City.  This is our second year at the zoo and we had a great time modifying some of our stories and songs to include Teddy Bears.

The children enjoyed a live performance of our adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s “The Elephant’s Child” with a teddy bear, as well as a version of the Hardware Store, with an ice cream loving Teddy Bear.

After the show, Ollie stuck around to chat with the kids for a little while and we all had a lot of fun.  We also got to see some of the new babies at the zoo, including the baby orangutan, the snow leopard cub, and the baby giraffe.

Maxed Out in Moab Utah


Thanks to Librarian Charlotte Hurley and the Grand County Library, Maxed Out Puppetry had a wonderful time among the stunning scenery of Moab Utah during the first weekend of August.  Despite the blazing summer sun, we were able to visit the natural wonder of Arches National Park.  In addition to the natural formations, thousands of years before puppetry there were Petroglyphs and on Charlotte’s recommendation we went to check out the ancient rock drawings of the Fremont culture as well as even more ancient dinosaur footprints preserved in the rocks nearby.
