Introducing Roopert the Kangaroo

It's been a while since I debuted a brand new character, but after months of hard work I'm thrilled to introduce Roopert the Kangaroo:



Roopert represents a new direction for me, for while he's as large as many of my costume-puppet creations, but he's not a costume-puppet. He's a special style of oversized mouth-and-live-arm puppet inspired loosely by the animal characters in the Lion King Broadway show.

I'm hoping to develop a scripted performance around Roopert next year, but in the meantime he's available for general walk-around meet-and-greet. If you'd like Roopert to appear at your next event, he'd be more than happy to hop on by.
