Lela Allmendinger started telling stories in elementary school and kept it up all the way through college.  Then, as fate would have it, she got a great job at the Springville Library as a storyteller where she started playing with puppets.

Lela’s husband, David, has been singing and dancing since grade school, and can make a whole range of voices and sounds.  The puppeteering couple started Puppetales in the summer of 2011 when they kept getting requests to perform shows. The Allmendingers have performed at the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival and all around Utah Valley.

Some of funny characters that show up in their stories are: Cami,  a Chameleon who doesn't speak but can be very rude...she loves to stick her tongue out at people;  Bartholomew, a great big black ape with a snooty attitude; Broccoli, a playful orange monster who loves children and is always asking questions; Penelope, a pretty pink monster with long eyelashes who loves music and people; Howard, a Horny Toad that can be kind of grumpy sometimes; and Bah Bah, a black sheep who loves to be the center of attention!
