Trick Yourself into Being Happy

Mr. Nicholas, the sock puppet, expresses his frustration with feeling grumpy and sad every day. Joshua, his soul mate, teaches him how to kick the blues by tricking himself into being happy.

This slam piece was written in 2012 and has since expanded into a full-length, award-winning, internationally touring family show, The Joshua Show.  This slam piece was chosen for the 2014 National Puppet Slam and has made the rounds on the US slam circuit.

 

Cotton

Joshua Holden’s signature, a sock puppet, and physical storytelling bring audiences on the epic journey of Cotton, a tender white rabbit who is lost and longs for the love and comfort of the magical life he once led.  This piece was developed at the National Puppetry Conference at Eugene O’Neill Theatre Center under the guidance of Ronnie Burkett.
