Using the power of puppetry to impact positive social change.
Our puppetry infused learning opportunities and performances inspire, challenge, empower, support expression and encourage empathy in our audiences and participants.
W.P. Puppet Theatre Society (WPTS) values originality, adaptability, diversity, imagination, communication, curiosity, collaboration, critical thinking, best practices and creativity.
We believe puppets have a special role as representatives and that art has a responsibility and opportunity to mirror and shape reality.
We experiment with the definition of ‘puppet art’ and showcase the potential of this medium valuing high aesthetics and inquiry and skills-based learning.
WP Puppet Theatre Society acknowledges that we are on Treaty 7 land. This is the traditional territory of the Blackfoot Confederacy that is shared with the Tsuu Tina and Stoney Nakoda people, and today with the settlers and newcomers.
We are committed to a policy of diversity and welcome persons of any race, creed, color, age, sex, religion or national origin to be part of our programs.
