Programs & Shows
PUPPET STORY TIME &
PUPPET FREE PLAY
We perform various types of puppet shows for both small and large audiences. Puppet Story Time is the program that I most often provide to libraries, schools, and daycare centers. It includes 30 minutes of stories and songs performed by the puppets, followed by (up to) 30 minutes of Puppet Free Play.
The stories & songs are interactive, allowing the kids to engage both their minds and bodies during the show.
After the show, the children are invited to participate in a hands-on Puppet Free Play session, where they can try on for themselves some of Newton's moving-mouth puppets, glove puppets, arm & rod puppets, and finger puppets.
This gives the children an opportunity to interact with other children while practicing gross & fine motor skills and engaging their imaginations. So much learning, so much fun!
Our shows can be geared to:
- toddlers (ages 0-3)
- preschoolers (ages 4-5)
- elementary students (grades K-2)
- older students (grades 7-12, college)
We can also perform shows in English and Spanish. Our Spanish shows are mostly in English, but we can tailor our shows to teach the kids Spanish topics: colors, numbers, letters, animals, clothes, days of the week, seasons, etc.
We also have a show geared toward older students (grades 7-12, and college). It is called My Birth Story: Adoption, Loneliness & Puppets.
You can preview this show HERE.
FESTIVALS & STREET FAIRS
We also perform at festivals, street fairs, and holiday events. We offer a mixture of storytime and improv, depending on the venue.
We have performed at:
Rose Kennedy Greenway
Downtown Boston Improvement District's Summer Series of Puppets & Games
Brookline's First Light Festival
The Marshfield Fair
Quincy's Annual Pride Festival
What's more fun than inviting puppets to your child's next birthday party? (Answer: Nothin!😆) Newton & the puppet gang loooove performing at birthday parties!
We offer a combination of Puppet Story Time and Puppet Free Play. The kids have the option of trying out the puppet stage -- and our special birthday party puppets -- including dinosaurs, Folkmanis animals, Sesame Street characters, and Melissa & Doug arm rod puppets.
We are happy to customize our show as best we can to celebrate the interests of the birthday honoree.
