While at Sadecky’s Puppets to record the role of Heidi, Carolyn met a new friend.

Mr. Sadecky, who has been performing with his puppets since the early 80s, was charming but also thorough.

He worked patiently with Carolyn to deliver the performance he wanted. “That was too formal,” he kept saying. “I want you to slur that line a little.”
