and the Ring" puppets donated to COPA About twenty rod
puppets from the U.C.L.A. production of "The Rose and The
Ring" have been donated to COPA by Barbara Maclay.
puppet show was the master's thesis for Maclay. Also donated
were notes, drawings and the script based on the story by
William Makepeace Thackerey. The story is a satire about
kings and princesses and changing identities. It includes
a lot of transformations, characters evolving into other
characters. It was a favorite of the legendary puppeteer,
Tony Sarg, who performed "The
Rose and The Ring" with marionettes.
