Artistic Director Lyon Hill from The Columbia Marionette Theatre will be featured on ETV's Palmetto Scene Thursday, June 19 at 7:30 p.m.  Friday after the broadcast, the video will also be available online at scetv.org/palmettoscene.

"I can't make something to be popular...the best thing I can do is make it interesting to me and then I hope that...that I am like other people and it will find an audience...so being fiercely true to yourself, as a way of actually making something that connects with other people, has been what I try to do," said Hill, who has found his calling as a puppet maker and puppeteer.

 

 Other topics covered in this episode of Palmetto Scene include:

  • Margaret Robbins, member of the Catawba Tribe in York County, uses her skills as a potter to preserve her heritage.
  • Godzilla Guy, a.k.a. Sean McGuinness, from Columbia finds new uses for a classic icon.
  • Could something as simple as play lead to science, technology, engineering, and math (also known as S.T.E.M) careers? Some educators located in Fort Mill, S.C. believe that LEGOS, when utilized correctly, could make common concepts in S.T.E.M. more understandable.

Repeat broadcasts are scheduled for Sunday, June 22 at 1:00 p.m. on ETV; Sunday, June 22 at 4:00 p.m. and Tuesday, June 24 at 5:00 p.m. on ETV World; and Thursday, June 26 at 8:00 p.m. on the South Carolina Channel.

The Puppet Maker Lyon Hill segment was produced as part of Original S.C., a 20-episode series featuring stories of everyday South Carolinians living, working and experiencing all that the Palmetto State has to offer. The series is a part of PBS Digital Studios.
