Current Shows

Most of our shows are non-storyline variety act shows, appropriate for all ages. Each show contains over a dozen different large, colorful puppets, with magicians, trapeze artists, silly animals, and tightrope walkers!

Each show is between 35-40 minutes long, with audience participation an integral part of each show.

We come complete with lights, sound system and puppet stage which has been built with larger venues and performance areas in mind;  all we need is an 8' x 10' or so space and access to electricity.

Live performances are an experience for children that just can't be duplicated in today's world of technology- often one of our shows is a child's first introduction to a theatrical experience.
