NH puppeteer teams with locals, industry experts to bring cast of colorful characters to broader audience
Smith has pulled together more than 40 volunteers and staff, from local friends to Emmy Award-winning writers and directors, experienced puppeteers, cinematographers and artistic directors, to create the hilarious but lesson-filled scenes and stories that will take place in "Snailville" and "Busy World."
In the program, Sammy Snail travels between the safety and comfort of Snailville, the natural, peaceful, organic world where he lives, and Busy World, where animals move much faster, exhibit more selfish behavior and don't necessary want to work things out with each other.
The actress and singer began using Sammy Snail to help engage students and "savvy adults" in learning helpful skills and goodwill and was soon asked to perform at private parties and school events.
She said puppets are the perfect medium to help teach children skills including conflict resolution and healthy choices.
