Puppetry Around The World is a one-of-a-kind show that will bring the magic of puppetry to life at your library for your young readers. It's not just a puppet show - it's a amazing cultural adventure.

Presented by a master puppeteer who was invited to study puppeteering with the Jim Henson Company, Puppetry Around The World introduces children to how cultures around the world created and performed with puppets. The audience will view lots of hilarious puppet skits that are presented in a custom-made, modern puppet theater. They will also get a chance to interact and participate at they learn about rod puppets, hand puppets, paper puppets and marionettes from India, Africa, Indonesia, and Japan.

The performance is fast-paced and entertaining for kids of all ages (even those that may think they are “too old” for a “puppet show”).

Puppetry Around The World makes a unique addition to summer reading program activities, and is also a great way to draw a crowd to the library during the cold winter months. We even provide you with a promotional poster to help generate excitement for the show.
