    Nicolas Coppola, Artistic Director of Puppetworks, first saw Suzari Marionettes as a 3rd grader at Brooklyn's P.S. 200, inspiring him, with the help of his seamstress mother and tailor uncle, to create his first cloth marionette.  In 1954, at the age of 19, he auditioned to become a professional puppeteer with the very same Suzari Marionettes, and was hired by them.  On leave from Suzari, while a soldier at Ft. Dix, New Jersey, he performed puppet routines for injured troops in the Army hospitals (below l.).  Back with Suzari in 1962, on his 27th birthday, he was elevated to Artistic Director, and the company became the Nicolo Marionettes, touring as many as 5 different productions simultaneously through much of the United States.
