Utah Presents graphic
  • THE CAROLL SPINNEY STORY

    JANUARY 29, 2016

    Kingsbury Hall

    For 45 years, Caroll Spinney has been beloved by generations of children as the man behind Sesame Street’s Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch. A loving portrait of the man in the yellow suit, the film features extraordinary footage of Spinney’s earliest collaborations with Jim Henson. As the yellow feathers give way to grey hair, it is the man, not the puppet, who will steal your heart. After the film, Spinney will be live on stage in conversation with KUED’s Ken Verdoia.
