This free-of-charge program is open to the public and is part of Farmlab's "Accidentally on Purpose" series that celebrates summer and spontaneity.
Watch our puppets sing, dance, perform sketch comedy, and engage in avant-garde art installations. Walk among giant fish in our puppet aquarium. Pick up a drum and jam with the percussion performance art group GLANK. Join in three-part harmony with our Praying Mantis doo-wop girl group.

About the Performers
The Puppet portion of "Accidentally on Purpose" is being spearheaded by Frank Langley, Donna Kimball and Jordan Albert. The three first collaborated on the wildly imaginative CLUBPUPPET a few years back and are currently putting their efforts into
PUPPETS AFTER HOURS, an adults-only puppet nightclub experience.
Frank Langley and Donna Kimball are co-founders of Ow My Arm Productions which is dedicated to the advancement of puppetry as an art form in film, television and theater.
Langley served as Puppet Coordinator of the feature film TEAM AMERICA:WORLD POLICE as well as a principal puppeteer. Other credits include Doc Ock's tentacles in SPIDER-MAN 2, the Foster Farms Chicken commercials, and most recently, the 2006/07 rock'n'roll World Tour with Beck.
Kimball also puppeteered on SPIDER-MAN 2 as well as TV's GREG THE BUNNY, but she can be seen most prominently as an actor in the films JARHEAD, CATCH ME IF YOU CAN and numerous commercials.
Albert is an actor and independent filmmaker presently balancing editing duties on G4TV's hit show CINAMATECH.
