57 – Noreen Young (Under the Umbrella Tree, Hi Diddle Day) – Under The Puppet
http://www.UnderThePuppet.com – Noreen Young is an incredibly influential puppeteer, puppet builder and producer who has been working in the business for decades. She had a hand in creating several iconic Canadian TV Shows including Hi Diddle Day and Pencil Box, she built puppets for TV Shows like Today’s Special and Telefrancais, and she created, produced and puppeteered on the show Under the Umbrella Tree which ran on the CBC and then The Disney Channel for years. Several of Noreen’s puppets are housed at the Canadian Museum of History and in 1995 she was awarded the Order of Canada, that country’s highest civilian honor, for her work in children’s television. I talk toNoreen Young about her career on this episode of Under The Puppet.
