The First United Methodist Church of Arroyo Grande Celebrates 125 Years of Ministry
Rock founded, Christ centered, Faith sustained
(as of 1996)
Mr. Quimper operates a soda fountain frequented by a number of kids: Priscilla, Skip, Herb, Bernie, and Bernie’s dog, Saint. The kids and Mr. Quimper get wrapped up in all manner of stories from which there is invariably a lesson to be learned.
The Innova Family
Mr. Wanco, Vinnie, Hugh, Felicia, and Beamer are the teenage version of the Quimper characters. Their escapades might remind one of a youth group - scary, isn’t it!
No puppet family would be complete without some animals. In addition to Saint, the dog, from Quimper’s Corner, this troupe includes a donkey, a lamb, and a lion. All but the lion had starring roles in the Christmas production of “The Littlest Shepherd,” as did most of the Quimper and Innova group.
That leaves one unnamed puppet that is our quick change artist. In fact, everything about him or her can change: eyes, ears, nose, hair, etc. With a little additional costuming help, this puppet played Akbar, the mouse, in “The Littlest Shepherd.”
