Josh and Todd: The Story of a Man and His Puppet

The Buttonwood Tree is happy to present a screening of the film Josh and Todd: The Story of a Man and His Puppet by Elmwood Productions.

What would you do if you woke up one morning and a monster puppet had moved in with you? Well, it what happened to Josh… Todd moved in and wreaked havoc on life as Josh knew it. What Josh didn’t know was how bad he needed Todd to do it. A hilariously entertaining film with an underlying message of equality. Warning: This show is definitely not for kids!

Underwriter of the Week

Berklee's mission is to educate, train, and develop students to excel in music as a career.

Developing the musicianship of all our students is the foundation of our curriculum. We believe that the lessons and qualities derived from that work—the self-discipline needed for excellence, the empathy required of music making and the openness and curiosity essential to creativity—are critical to achievement in any pursuit, musical or otherwise.
