Puppetry is a dynamic, living art form! The magical world of PuppetWorks educates and enlightens audiences of all ages and backgrounds. NEW THIS YEAR, all shows are performed in a backlight style of puppetry- the puppets, scenery and audience glow in the dark! Performances are 40 minutes long. They include a pre-show activity and a post show puppet tutorial. Productions are geared towards our youngest audience members ages 3-8, but are enjoyed by all.
Hand & Rod, Marionettes, Masks, Black Light, Full Body, and so much more
Theater Works presents the magical world of PuppetWorks; to educate and enlighten audiences of all ages, abilities and backgrounds and to share its passion for puppetry as a dynamic, living art form. PuppetWorks productions come to life in many forms, from traditional to contemporary through the use of Hand & Rod puppets, Marionettes, Masks and costume figures. Puppet performances are used as a base for entertainment, education, and artistic expression. The puppets and puppeteers encourage children to interact with a talk back after each performance and to participate in certain performances that have a Make-n-Take event, which lets kids build their own puppet to take home. Theater Works puppet department supports the local community through partnerships with area businesses, schools and other philanthropic organizations. We encourage and participate in puppetry and performing arts as a community service that can change lives for the better.
