our latest puppetry production, Streets of Singapore premiered at the Second International Marionette Festival 2010 in Hanoi, Vietnam from 6 – 9 September, which included public shows as well as a competition segment featuring 19 different puppetry groups from 12 countries.
We’re glad to announce that Frankie and team received top honors at the Festival. Frankie was singled out for excellent skill in puppetry by Ngo Quynh Giao, chairman of the jury.
We received the following awards:

The Gold Award for Best Performance is the top prize of the Festival.
