Steve Petra – How To Make What’s in Your Head Come Out On Stage

Petra Puppets

WARNING: Listening to this podcast will take you inside of Steve Petra’s brain. If you’re creatively claustrophobic, do not listen. But if you want your mind expanded; if your ears are dying for some creative candy… then venture forth.

Yes, we talk about puppets, but Steve and I talk about much more….

  • How to warm up your audience,
  • How to create the perfect school show,
  • The evolution of ventriloquism,
  • Philosophies of Frank Zappa,
  • …and How to rule the world in a gorilla suit!

Steve is a spectacular ventriloquist that specializes in curriculum-based assembly programs for elementary schools.

He’s performed and/or lectured at The Vent Haven ConVENTion, The KIDabra Conference, KAX, Puppeteers of America festivals and at Puppet Guild events.

He’s a mover and a shaker in the Vent world.
