Nehprii Amenii and Jean Marie Keevins In Conversation

Nehprii Amenii and Jean Marie Keevins are two very different puppet artists with very similar passions. Join us for an evening of honest and raw conversation between two women determined to use their gifts to shine light on important topics, create space for healing and frankly, just get into it. The evening will close with a brief Q&A.

This event is presented as part of our “Puppet Tuesday” series.


Our Pay What You Can format for our “Puppet Tuesdays” Series makes it possible for everyone to attend. Please pay as much as you can so that others who cannot will still be able to participate.

Thank you.
