Milo the Magnificent
Imagine you'd love to be a magician, but you haven't quite mastered your act yet. It can be a little embarrassing, maybe frustrating but you want to make me people happy, so you keep trying. That's at the heart of the show, "Milo the Magnificent," a little puppet at the center of the show created by Alex Vernon and Sarah Olmsted Thomas. They have taken this show all over North America and next week, it appears at the Festival of Animated Objects. The puppet festival starts its 9th year on Wednesday, with shows at the downtown Royal Canadian Legion, as well as Arts Commons and you can get information at puppetfestival. ca. Alex and Sarah, the creators of Milo the Magnificent joined Russell Bowers on the phone from their latest tour stop in Detroit.
