MFAW-VT alumna Gina Leigh has just launched the pilot episode of Circus Town

Circus Town is an original, all-puppet children’s television show that explains physics through the fun of circus stories. Meet Sally Spangles, her best friend Girard the Giraffe, and a singing flea circus!  Circus Town had its beginnings in Gina’s Goddard thesis. 
Gina traveled the country learning all she could about the craft of puppetry. Apparently it runs in her blood as her great great grandfather was a puppeteer from Sicily. She worked for companies such as Tears of Joy Puppet Theatre and attended the famed O’Neill Puppetry conference where she met and teamed up with another talented puppeteer Aaron Lathrop. The two just tied the knot this summer!
