Squallis Puppeteers, whose larger-than-life and distinctive puppets you may recognize from festivals like Forecastle and Bourbon & Beyond, will celebrate their 25th anniversary this year. In honor of the occasion, Portland Museum is hosting a commemorative exhibit about the group, which will have its grand opening on Saturday, Nov. 19, from 5-9 p.m.
The exhibit will have puppets, photos, props and other memorabilia from the group’s history. The grand opening, which will be free and open to the public, will include a free finger puppet-making workshop, music, a meet and greet with Executive Director Nora Christensen and the Squallis Board of Directors, and refreshments.
According to a press release, there will also be a “BIG ANNOUNCEMENT” at 8 p.m.
