The Joshua Show, Episode 2: ‘Contagious’
Brooklyn, New York USA
New York City based Joshua Holden performed at Puppets Up! for the first time in 2015. Everyone was completely charmed by his personality, his humour, his singing and dancing, and his delightful puppets – particularly his crusty old soul-mate, the high-maintenance Mr Nicolas. Joshua is a physically dynamic actor and puppeteer with extensive training in Shakespeare, physical storytelling and puppetry. His shows are totally appealing to all ages.
In The Joshua Show, Episode 1: Authenticity, Joshua and his cast of characters learned the importance of being true to who you are. Joshua returns to Puppets Up! with the second installment. In Episode 2’s world premiere, the familiar cast of characters embark on a new adventure. Together, they fight evil and help save the world by spreading kindness like a welcome contagion. Much like the beloved Episode 1, the show features live music, singing, dancing, and puppetry that leaves audiences uplifted and delighted – they can’t help but be swept away by the vulnerability and resilience of Mr. Nicholas, the Wonderbook, Snail Male the male mail snail, and Larry the Lint.
