October 1 – Jim Oliver Puppet Show

Young and old will delight to the  performance by Jim Oliver “Puppetator” with puppets Jed and Jenny in Little Outhouse on the Prairie.  Jen and Jenny, two pioneers who move to the SD prairie in the 1870’s to homestead, struggle to build a home and grow a crop in order to survive.  The story is loosely based on historical fact but quickly gets out of hand.
BIO: Jim Oliver has been entertaining children and adults for over 30 years with his skill as a puppeteer (or “puppetator” as his children tagged him many years ago). He plied his skill for many years as a children’s librarian at the Sioux Falls Public Library. Upon retirement Jim took his skill out into the community at large.
