About Art: Art has somehow cobbled together a quarter century long career as a full time puppeteer. Essentially lazy in nature, Art has relied on easy to build, easy to perform rod puppets since marionettes are hard and take way too long to make and glove puppets make him raise his arms too high.

Support Us

We are so proud of the work we do with our small staff of professional puppeteers and theater artists and we are excited to re-open our doors after over a year! Throughout the worst of the pandemic, we provided drive-in shows to families who needed a break out of the house to see live entertainment. While we are so happy to return indoors, we are still facing a large loss of income from limited school and child care performances and the likelihood of no school field trips in the coming year. Please consider supporting us today with a monthly donation of any amount. Every little bit helps!
