Since the frigid days of January, the Cattywampus Puppet Council have been using the historic Candoro Marble building as a place to prepare for spring happenings! The first evening that I opened the doors for them, the Marble halls filled with the sweet sound of collaborative brainstorming paired with the soothing soul of accordion, and I fell into the a giddy and childlike wonder. From their handmade sets to their large paper-mache animal heads, the puppet troupe is a pleasure to be in the presence of. You will have many chances to see them this spring. There will be a performance at Candoro which will serve as a trial run for their big Dogwood Arts Festival performance in mid-April.
The evening event will also include a square dance and potluck, in celebration of the Spring planting season!
Potluck begins at 6:30, then a 25 minute puppet show leading into an all-ages square dance with a live band. The dance is fun and easy to try, with our caller Stan Sharp giving instructions before each dance.
You are also invited to join the puppet council’s work party on Sunday, March 28 from 2-6pm on the grounds of Candoro. No experience is necessary and curiosity welcome – you can come help them finish paper mache-ing puppets , painting sets, and more to prepare for their spring shows. They promise, “you’ll leave a little bit messier and filled with whimsy.”

The roof was caving in, there was no plumbing, little electric, and plaster was falling off the walls. The interior of the building had no kitchen, no handicapped bathroom, and lacked half of it’s flooring. On the exterior, tiles were broken, trees were compromising the foundation and Virginia Creeper vines were working to take the building down.
Charlie was a person of boundless creativity, energy, and generosity to others.
A wonderful listener, he also opened his heart to many friends and associates. Not only was Charlie a talented architect, he was a water colorist and a photographer. The next time you take an evening drive or stroll up Central Avenue at the Baxter Ave intersection look up and you will see the lighted tower of the Holy Ghost Catholic Church. This lighting is an example of Charlie’s artistic handiwork as well as the new exterior lighting on the Candoro Building.
He explored life fully on both the physical and spiritual planes: dancing, hiking, boating, visiting his ancestral country Italy many times, as well as learning about many religious philosophies. He loved his family of five children and 11 grandchildren, and was especially happy spending time with them individually as well as at their large holiday dinners. Charlie drove his vintage truck up Gay Street, with his grandson Logan, at the Dogwood Arts Parade every Spring and rumbled through the streets of Vestal and South Knoxville in his vintage jeep each Mother’s Day weekend, picking up last minute items for “VESTIVAL”: South Knoxville’s Art and Heritage Festival. Last but not least, Charlie was a dedicated participant in our democracy. These are my memories of an exceptional man.
Oh Charlie, what will we do without you? One thing we know, we will never forget you.
…and always love you, Trudy

Thank you for your interest in serving as a volunteer for VESTIVAL 2015 which takes place on Saturday, May 9, 2015. Many volunteers are needed to bring this popular event to the community for the 15th year. Please fill out this volunteer interest form, and the volunteer coordinator will connect with you as soon as possible.
For the Salon Series, Carpetbag Theatre will present the best of Knoxville’s local talent in various settings to cultivate artistic sharing and support in the arts. By definition, the French word salon (a living room or parlor) means a conversational gathering. Usually this gathering is a select group of intellectuals, artists, and politicians who meet in the private residence of a socially influential, and often wealthy, person.
While the Carpetbag Theatre, Inc. has presented national and international leaders in the fields of theatre and dance, it has never forgotten about the local artists living and working in the Knoxville area. Its support of artists started with Café Noir, a monthly open mic where artist shared their work. Carpetbag continues this commitment by presenting the Salon Series.
Carpetbag is committed to developing Knoxville’s emerging artists by providing them opportunities to display their talent. Come join us for an intimate performance from local artists! There is a cover of $5 and can be paid at the door. The event takes place at the historic Candoro Marble Building located at 4450 Candora Ave. Knoxville, TN 37920.
