Beale Street Puppets!
Jill Kyle-Keith and Toby Walker at the 2018 Petrushka Puppet Festival in Ykaterinburg, Russia!
This year marks the 30th Anniversary of Beale Street Puppets of Baltimore, MD! We've performed at hundreds of venues for thousands of children. And as artists, we're proud to say that we've made our way in the world- and in 2018, our trip to Russia was the pinnacle for us- a week with other performers, doing shows with our peers from across the globe.
In these difficult political times, we firmly believe that it's the arts that make a connection to other countries and cultures. And puppetry, which is primarily viewed by children and families, is a perfect vehicle to let the younger generation know that in essence, we are all alike despite our differences. Cheesy, for sure, but true nonetheless. We are ambassadors- to be sure, it's on a small scale, but we take it seriously.
We plan to perform again for the Puppet Carnival- check back with us to see where in the world we'll go next!
