Discussion in 'Muppet Headlines' started by GelflingWaldo, May 10, 2007.
that would be so wonderful thank you so much i know that i would love to see them
So there's a question and answer session. Has anybody thought about asking Dave Goelz if he knows whether the Sam and Friends characters are owned by Henson or Disney? Has anybody ever thought of asking him why Digit hasn't been used much since The Jim Henson Hour? Did anybody (or has anybody thought to) ask Dave about his experiences on A Muppet Family Christmas, The Muppets at Walt Disney World, The Jim Henson Hour, or Muppets Tonight?
That is a good question about digit i would like to know that myself , and i would like to know about a couple of others also .
Here's a clip from the San Francisco one:
And the schedule's up too, sans guest speakers:
Gah! I Am So Excited!
UPDATE on the one in Huntington: http://www.cinemaartscentre.org/may07/muppetsschedule.html
Its great but us nonmembers have to wait till July 15 to buy tickets while members can buy tickets since thursday June 28. Most members will likely not be interested im hoping and know i will get to see or try to see everything that interests me. Tickets are General Public $10.00 • Children 11 and under $8.00 Member/Student/Senior $8.00 and Benefit Reception with Special Guests $100.00. Im a student so i get $8.00 tickets. Great prices and the Benefit Reception is a great way to show support so things like this can continue to go on and a great way to meet Muppeteers and Muppets. Enjoy
I believe someone said a while ago that the special guests would be posted up on July 1st. It doesn't say that on the website, and there aren't any special guests up (to be fair, it's pretty early in the day).
Either way, I think I'll make a call a little later today to see if they've solidified any guests yet.
anyone body knows when this comes to Rochester, NY? I seen on GW's web blog that it was comming soon but does anyone have a date? o r know of one?
I'm not sure, I don't think they've solidified the event quite yet.
Dad just called the Cinema Arts Centre, they have confirmed:
1. Dave Goelz
2. Carroll Spinney
3. Kevin Clash
4. Every surviving member of the Henson family
And they said that they will be putting up the guest speakers on: brownpapertickets.com if you type in "Cinema Arts Centre", and find each specific Muppet event, but none are listed.
Before they posted up the schedule they have now, they had a blurb on there that said guests would be announced July 1st. I'm just reiterating what I read. I don't have any further "inside" info other than what's been posted on the website so far and you're right as of right now, nothing's been posted...
WOW, Dave Goelz is making it to the East Coast. AWESOME. I will have to be at that event for sure! And I'd love to finally get a pic with Carroll Spinney!
I just spoke to the theater myself. The two things I was very happy with was they're "camera friendly", and they're working on trying to devise a weekend pass type of thing (which would be awesome so we could go to things as we please because the screenings add up individually!)
see from GW's blog...
** The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco is set to run "Muppets, Music & Magic" screenings and events from June 21-July 1 with very special guest Dave Goelz. The Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington Long Island will be hosting the tour on August 10-12 with a huge slate of special guests. There are also plans for a smaller presentation at the George Eastman House in Rochester to follow. **
sorry gang, i DONT mean to sound like a pest, but im TRYING to find out a date when there in Rochester, ny! I plan to go (take the day off from work) and drive up there it ONLY be a 45min drive for me.
So Caroll Spinney will be at one of these event? I hope somebody asks him about Shivers the Penguin, and some more information about Baby Monster, and also some questions about why he performed Lefty instead of Frank Oz in some skits, and how he was able to see when he was performing Bruno. I hope that I'm not putting questions into people's minds (or am I?), but if anybody does ask those questions, I hope that answers ar eposte dhere. I don't think any of these events will be held in my town.
And with Kevin Clash there, I hope somebody asks him questions about performing Buster the Horse (mainly how he got to perform the character at a time when he wasn't even a full-time performer), and about why Leon hasn't been used much since The Jim Henson Hour, and I hope that some people ask Clash and Spinney some questions about Follow That Bird. I will now take a pill that prevents me from making question suggestions for awhile.
But I have some advice for those wanting to ask questions. If I ever attend a fan convention or something like this, I would make a list of questions that I want to ask, and if anybody else asks any of the questions that I've planned to ask, I'd cross off the questions. That would make it easier to narrow down what to ask.
I have no idea about the one in Rochester, but it sounds like it's set in stone. Does the venue have a phone number?
And thanks for the tip minor muppetz.
Also I don't know if anyone has mentioned it, but if you pay an extra hundred, you can go to a reception with some or all of the special guests from the Muppet event, and maybe get to meet them one on one.
Whoah, it's like a Muppetfestish event. This is freaking RAD.
I hope everyone who lives within a few hundred miles or more who wants to go can make it!
cinemaartscentre.com listed that Special Guests include Heather Henson, Fran Brill, Dave Goelz, Carroll Spinney, Kevin Clash, Every surviving member of the Henson family, and more! Dog City & Storyteller has the Guest Speaker: Fran Brill, Muppeteer, and Zoe is the guest for Elmo in grouchland. Besides that its still to be anounced. This is so cool. Enjoy.
I see Heather and Fran listed but I don't see anything about Kevin, Carroll, or Dave. Where did you see that?
I think she's going by what they say when you call them.
I don't see why they're not listing those three on the site when the phone number specifically listed them. I also don't know why the phone number did not list Fran Brill. Perhaps they're keeping it to themselves until the regular tickets go on sale.
Separate names with a comma.
