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

Remembering "The Brand New Same Old Bologna Show"

"It's better than Avatar" -Prof. John Bell (Ballard Institute of Puppetry) Jan. 2010

A wild spasm of hooey, hogwash and nonsense hosted by the great bologna, featuring the music of olden days played by a six piece gorilla brass band. Brought to you by the Old Reliable Amusement Company--Featuring members of Over A Cardboard Sea, Modern Times Theater and The Dolly Wagglers. On Tour for TWO WEEKS ONLY!

If you were unable to make it to one of our blisteringly entertaining live shows, here is what you missed:

Half a dozen hand made gorilla suits

Singing fruit solo during the "Tiger Rag" at the Main Street Museum in White River Junction, VT

Adam, Lindsay, Jimmy and Timmy play a fiddle rag in New London, CT

Justin Lander and Rose Friedman the duo who call themselves "Modern Times Theater" play some lovely duets on cornet and ukelele at Vincent's in Worcester, one of our new favorite places

"Is that a tentacle?" Just one of the many moments of distress in our ham-fisted cardboard melodrama followed by a low-tech close up of the main characters.

What?... "Surprise, Surprise You Haven't Seen Everything Yet" Cranky Show narrated by Adam and Jimmy

Jimmy, Timmy and Lindsay sing "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles" which makes the fathead so sad. Every time.

What could be more entertaining than singing, scatting bananas with a hairy coconut

All the way from Dubuque, IA its Randy Clifton and his little doll, Hazel Darnell

Adam and Timmy croon about Bologna Cologne

Every Bologna show needs a lounge act and this one is "pure class."

Thank you to everyone who hosted us and supported us by coming to our shows. We have never had so much fun. Stay in touch because the Bologna show may rear its fleshy pink face again in a town near you!
