MicheLee Puppets is Florida’s leader in educational puppetry and focuses on important issues such as early childhood education, health and wellness and STEAM. Each Sunday Family Fun Day will have a different theme that reflects these topics and more.


 

MicheLee Puppets and Venue on the Lake are partnering up once again for  Sunday Family Fun Days in 2018. Sunday Family Fun Days will take place on select Sundays throughout 2018 at Venue on the Lake in Maitland, and will feature special guests, themed events, and puppet performances.

“Public performances provide the opportunity to empower the whole family. Students see MicheLee Puppets performances in school and can discuss bully prevention strategies with their friends, or practice rhyming for reading readiness in their classrooms, but we want our messages to reach further. By partnering with Venue on the Lake-Maitland Civic Center, multiple generations can attend a show together, which opens up a dialogue about these important topics, extending beyond the school environment,” said Tracey Conner, Executive Director of MicheLee Puppets.
