We work with original scripts, music and many different puppetry styles as well as live actors, film, projections, dance and story telling. Our materials aesthetic has explored fiber, plastic, wood, copper, paper, light and found objects! We are actively engaged in evolving and experimenting with the definition of ‘puppet art’ in our work as we show our audiences the unbounded potential of this medium.

We believe that producing theatre for young audiences is an important job. We understand the responsibility in performing for young (and older) minds to have a positive and lasting impact. Our goal therefore is to bring ideas to families or students that will spark conversations, encourage profound thought and inspire creativity.

Our portfolio of twenty -five productions is a tale itself of expansive curiosity and whimsical impulse:
