Midcoast Senior College presents a free talk in its Summer Wisdom Series, Puppet Making for Dummies. With the art of ventriloquism making its way back into mainstream entertainment, Austin Phillips finds himself busier than ever meeting a unique demand. Based in downtown Portland, he is a builder and restorer of professional ventriloquist figures as well as puppets. Austin is also a ventriloquial history and Punch and Judy enthusiast possessing an extensive collection of antique figures and artifacts dating back to the 1800s. He is able to live out his passion each day working with his ventriloquist figures, and is happy to share and discuss that unusual passion with us. Sponsored by Thornton Oaks in Brunswick.
