The Dolly Wagglers: Purveyors of Entertainment and Spectacle

My photo
As "The Dolly Wagglers, we strive to bring a fresh crudeness and entertaining humility to the world of puppetry. We are constantly at work on cardboard operettas, crankyshows (low-tech scrolling pictures), and cantastorias (picture shows). In our decade of gallavanting hither and thither we have created a small stockpile of shows, both longer and shorter that we have performed all over the place. Lindsay currently is at work in Detroit, MI. Adam is working on projects in Northern Vermont. Several times a year we travel to different places to build parades and pageants with some of our favorite communities. To contact us: lindsayamccaw at

Mayday and Halloween show, Minneapolis

We owe a lot of our greatest experiences to the arts community in Minneapolis, MN.
Pictures of Mayday 2010: This Mayday Parade turned out to be a lot of fun. We managed to find some pictures here and there. Featured here are six dedicated puppeteers dressed as roosters pulling two golden chariots with winged archers atop accompanied by a flower clad band of horns drums and "thunder sheets." It was memorable.

This first picture is from Lindsay's first year on the Mayday staff. It is Old Man River or the Father of Waters in the 2007 parade.
