The Improbable Princess

Betsy Tobin presented The Auspicious Adventures of an Improbable Princess at the Shelburne Museum on February 17th for the opening of the exhibition:                                                               Puppets: World on a String. 

This immersive exhibition curated by Carolyn Bauer celebrates the wonder of puppets while investigating the ways in which puppet theater mediates between worlds both real and imagined.
