 After a wonderful 2022 season of puppet shows, we are settling in to the quiet time of January and February. It’s a good time to make puppets and plan other projects. We are looking forward to an equally fun year of puppetry ahead.  This spring, we are bringing back two fairy tales that start with R! We haven’t performed “Rumpelstiltskin” or “Rapunzel” for many years and thought it was time to bring back these old chestnuts. They will be available to school and other audiences during the week. This summer, we will dust off “Ivanushka and the Magic Horse.” This is a handpuppet show b ..read more

We are pleased to bring back this spring favorite. We first built this show with an eye to springtime and it will definitely be spring by the time we perform it, during the last weekend in April, May Day and Mother’s Day weekend. Our version of  this beloved fairy tale includes a gaggle of witches (familiar to our audiences!) who bestow gifts on a baby princess, an overprotective father, a mean witch-turned-snow monster, a princess who loves to garden and a cloud of colorful butterflies. Butterflies, of course, are a metaphor for life after death. Side note: The spinning wheel was one of ..read more
