Explore, create, and learn through the power of puppetry – programs for K-12! WP Puppet Theatre Society has been offering performances, workshops, residencies, and professional development for schools and communities since 1991.
Our current production, Pigs in a Canoe and other Watery Stories, and the French language version, Petits Cochons dans un Canot, is suitable for grades K-6 and links curriculum from art to science. Our Artistic Director, Wendy Passmore-Godfrey, has recently won the Marjorie Batchelder McPharlin Award for education through the Puppeteers of America. Wendy can customize workshops, residencies, and professional development sessions to meet your classroom’s needs and goals, for any grade from K-12. We also have a very cost effective Puppets on the Go rental program ready to ship anywhere in Alberta, with four different crates to choose from.
Puppetry appeals to diverse learning styles and motivates students by simply having fun!
