Sue-WitekHaving performed as a storyteller and puppeteer for over 25 years, the talented head puppeteer Susan Witek has entertained children for corporate clients such as Abbott and Baxter plus a wide number of public libraries and festivals throughout the Midwest. Her pleasing effervescence is a fine match for her skills as an entertainer, enabling her to delight youngsters with wonderful enchanting takes. Susan often dresses for the season…she’s a witch at Halloween when weaving eerie tales of ghosts and goblins. At winter holidays, she becomes a perky elf telling stories befitting the season of snowman and elves. Susan A. Witek has a Bachelors of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, two masters degrees and has studied with the great Hans Schmidt and Ray Nelson, the Midwestern master. Both men taught puppetry classes at the Chicago Public Library.
