The Great Space Coaster featured a magical coaster to an asteroid deep in space populated with puppet characters such as Gary Gnu with his catchphrase, “No Gnews is Good Gnews with Gary Gnu.” The show had a variety of entertainment, including skits with human and puppet characters, independent and foreign animation, original as well as cover music, and iconic celebrity guest stars of the 80’s (such as Mark Hamill, Henry Winkler, Dr. Ruth, Linda Gray, and more). The show was one of the most popular non-Henson puppet shows ever produced. A snapshot of the 80’s generation, The Great Space Coaster enjoys a cult following and is fondly remembered by people now between 35 and 45 years old.

The Guild of Thespian Puppets is a puppet acting troupe of original handmade puppets created by local filmmaker and puppeteer, Michael Patrei. They perform live puppet shows for both children and adults with shows at theaters, libraries, elementary schools, colleges, and coffee shops. In addition to their live shows they have a series of humorous videos on YouTube (www.youtube.com/HamletTheMonkey)
