Innovative performance techniques as in Eastern Europes "Black Theater" enhance creative rod puppet performances. Unique control mechanisms allow refined manipulation of marionettes.


Over 1800 performances are presented annually in venues ranging from large theater venues to private events. Educators and students from hundreds of schools each year give enthusiastic reviews as they enjoy and learn from the these programs. Art and music festivals spotlight the shows as an enjoyable experience for family audiences.

Since all productions require a high degree of performance skills, each puppeteer maintains proficiency by performing multiple productions in an active schedule of shows. Constant rehearsal and performance insure the high quality required by the company and presenters of the work.

Nationally known artists consult on scripts and set design while office staff oversees sales, marketing, publicity and maintenance of puppets. They have been touring for more than 25 years and is known for reasonable analysis of travel costs. Productions are designed for fast set-up and strike times, allowing for multiple venues in a single day. All are designed to travel by commercial air or van.

Just imagine the giggles, squeals of delight and ear to ear smiles on your child's face when they appear in the "Center Ring" of their very own puppet "circus", take a magical trip to an "enchanted toyshop" or visit a "wonderful world of puppets", with its many colorful and fun-loving characters. Fun for all ages.

Bilingual Spanish Marionette Show


Marionette Show Marionettes



This show has thirty years of pulling heartstrings and over two-hundred professional handcrafted marionettes-- a lifetime of dedicated work. They offer thirteen different shows with colorful, interactive, and child friendly marionette puppets that stand about 18-20 inches tall and perform right in front of the audience.  The children delight at the puppets' animated moving eyes, mouths and eyebrows. Typically, shows run a standard half hour and contain between eight and ten large marionettes. Shows can be self-contained including our own microphone, music, lighting, staging and amplification, and power supply.


An optional educational workshop or puppet making activity can follow the show. The educational workshop is fifteen minutes whereby a collection of puppets from around the world will be shared and touched.  Kids will see the five main genres of puppet types: hand, rod, shadow, sock, finger, and of course marionettes.  They will learn how to make a shadow puppet show from a cereal box.


The thirty minute puppet making activity includes all puppet making materials: scissors, glue stick, crayons, and paper bags.
