Collierville Burch Library Hosts Sesame Street Puppeteer!

Billy optDavid Stephens will present his award winning show Billy Goats Gruff & Other Stuff at the Collierville Library on Monday, July 24th from 1:00 – 1:45 pm in the Storytelling Room. No registration is necessary.

The show is a retelling of some classic fairy tales along with some of Stephens’s own stories. The production was originally developed for the Alabama Public Libraries, and has since had 3 very successful runs at The Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta. The show has even won the “Oscar” of the puppet world – a Citation of Excellence from UNIMA-USA. UNIMA is Union Internationale de la Marionette a professional organization for puppeteers founded in 1929.

Stephens is originally from Alabama, and from his early professional career worked on Sesame Street and other Jim Henson Foundation produced projects. When Stephens began to get homesick for the south, he returned to Alabama and started All Hands Productions, which produces Billy Goats Gruff & Other Stuff and other puppet shows. Check out his site at This event is for all ages. No pre-registration is necessary.
