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

The Flying Donkey Cabaret, Feb.-Mar. 2011

The Flying Donkey Cabaret was a two week puppet-waggling rampage that was built and debuted in Portland, ME and made its way to New Orleans, LA. We teamed up with Federica Collina and Jason Hicks. Here are pictures from the show:

The King of Fun demands entertainment

Lindsay plays a very convincing "owl" oracle in "Bavarian Folktale"

One of the many ways to "Fly a Donkey" performed by Federica and Jason

Adam performs "Uh Oh" a cantastoria based on a poem by Antler, a Milwaukee poet.

Other Shows from Portland, ME... Below is the talking gravy puppet from our November 2010 "Gravy Taste" event and a photo from the Over a Cardboard Sea show at the State Theater.
