The Dolly Wagglers: Purveyors of Entertainment and Spectacle
- Lindsay McCaw and Adam Cook
- 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 gmail.com
Crankies and Cantastorias
We have been honored to participate in several Cantastoria and Cranky gatherings hosted by our esteemed friends Claire Dolan and Dave Buchen. Here is the the poster from Banners and Cranks, NYC and Bi-Vitititiri, Puerto Rico, both posters made by Dave Buchen:

Here are pictures of Cantastorias and Crankies that we have made and performed:
