Joshua Holden (USA)
Spend your afternoon with The Ambassador of Joy and award-winning puppeteer, Joshua Holden. His new show, The Joshua Show: Episode 2, will cheer up even the grumpiest grump, like Joshua’s right-hand man, Mr. Nicholas, who is planning an escape to outer space.
Joshua is known throughout US puppetry circles as the most sympathetic, honest, and inspiring performer for children since Mr. Rogers. His hand puppet, Mr. Nicolas, can never quite seem to find his place in the world, and his frank discussions with his puppeteer, Joshua, are warm, funny, and also very real. With singing, tap dancing, and a cast of zany puppets, Joshua sets out to convince Mr. Nicholas to stay, and in doing so, he brings glee to the masses. Relax your smile muscles now because The Joshua Show: Episode 2 will have you smiling from ear to ear with contagious joy.
Mr. Holden has dedicated his shows to lightening the mood of all in the theater, puppets and humans alike.
