Master of Social Work, collage artist, and art teacher was a member of Play Back Theater Co., 1994-1999. Play Back Theater takes the audience members’ life stories and integrates them into their performances. This is a vehicle for community building and social change. Sarah believes that giving voice to characters builds compassion. Understanding points of view is fascinating because it asks the actor to inhabit another person’s sense of life. Sarah’s professional work in Early Childhood Development, and her imaginary play with her grandchildren Eli and Josie, informs her puppet performances. She believes that because play is the principal mode by which children process their world, puppets are the perfect tool to explore more complicated themes like illness, dying, and morality.
