You have so much happening in this space and thank you for providing us with the tour, because there is every nook and cranny is full of puppets. I. Don't think I've seen this many puppets in my lifetime, but this is such a magical place. Tell us what happens when someone visits it's a school group or a group of visitors, lots.
Can come to your show, we have a show in June and we have shows throughout the year we have about 18 to 20,000 visitors here to this location, and you can make a puppet. You can see the puppets on display. There are a few puppets you can play with yourself and there are hundreds of puppets. You can look at and then there's you can make a puppet and you take it home with you or and then there are the shows that we perform here. Mm-Hmm.
