SAFETY FIRST!: A TRUE treasure-seeking story of LIFE and DEATH as told with MAGIC and PUPPETS by Cyndi Parr

In 2010, Forrest Fenn hid $2 million worth of treasure in the Rocky Mountains. Five people died looking for it. In 2018, puppeteer Cyndi Parr was convinced she knew where it was, and went on a solo hike to find it in New Mexico. This is a story about safety and how the right combo of optimism and tenacity can make us take risks we wouldn't otherwise take when we become convinced we know the right answer.

This is the first time this story has ever been told in full. And it will be told with magic and puppets!
