About Schroeder Cherry
A native of Washington, D.C., Schroeder Cherry played with puppets as a kid. In college, he tried puppetry to see how he would respond to his childhood interest. He apprenticed to a puppet master in Chicago while in college, and then joined a troupe before setting out on his own. Dr. Cherry has performed original shows with puppets in museums, libraries and cultural centers for adults and children across the U.S. - excerpted from the Young Audiences website.
