Great Big Family Play Day Welcomes Ricky Roo and Friends

We are pleased to announce that Ricky Roo and Friends has joined the Great Big Family Play Day to be held August 11th in Discovery Meadow Park.

Hello. My name is Chris, and used to be a preschool teacher in Berkeley, CA. I started doing puppet shows as part of my classroom curriculum about three years ago. I quickly fell in love with the open-ended nature of puppetry! It engages and connects people with simple truths. While it sparked my student’s imaginations, it also sparked mine.

I began spending my free time dreaming up new worlds, characters, and stories. Soon I found a couple of shows at school wasn’t enough. So, I began doing shows at home, alongside my daughter, Mira. We started performing for friends, and then their friends. My little world of puppets kept continually growing. Here I now am, playing with puppets almost every day!
