In person puppet shows

Puppet Show + Workshop

Designed for up to 30 students, these small ‘puppet show + workshop’s are easy to host in a classroom setting and inexpensive. Students enjoy a short puppet show followed by instruction and help on making their own puppet for creative fun.

Water Droplet
A comedic puppet water droplet cycles through the water phases of liquid, solid and vapour as well as going through the inside of a cow, a freezer, a sewer and more. The audience provides a watery soundtrack! In the workshop portion, students make their own balloon-based water droplet puppet.

The Greedy Frog

Originally an Australian folktale, about a frog who swallowed all the water in the world, but it’s given a modern overtone with found object puppets and modern water issues. A child holds the key to the padlock though and saves the world!
In the workshop portion, students make a moving part object puppet and determine its character!

“Our students were delighted and mesmerized by the show. This blend of fun and learning through the arts is wonderful to see”
