We're open for puppetry
Like every business in the entertainment industry, the Puppet Kitchen has seen a significant impact from the COVID-19 global pandemic. We remain committed to keeping the company active, employing designers, builders, teachers, and performers throughout this difficult time. The Puppet Kitchen, and many of the independent contractors we work with, are accustomed to finding creative solutions to unique challenges, and we will continue to bring you puppets and puppetry while we all adapt to the many changes around us.

Puppet Kitchen is a New York City-based hub for puppetry, offering design, fabrication, performance, and direction.
Whether you’re looking for a giant spectacle, a curious creature, a magical reality, or just the impossible come to life, the Puppet Kitchen can make it happen. Founded in 2008, the Puppet Kitchen brings designers, performers, fabricators, and directors together to elevate productions around the world and handle every facet of creating gorgeous puppetry for the stage, screen, and live events. Led by NYC-based artist Eric Wright, the Puppet Kitchen works in just about every puppetry style and partners with productions of every size to bring stories and characters to life.
The Puppet Kitchen's creations are highly imaginative, unabashedly unique and always designed to illuminate stories and characters in the most surprising ways.
Eric and his team can bring anything to life . . . a sweatshirt, a roll of toilet paper, a potato knish . . . but most importantly, they can bring your ideas to life and make them more vivid and soulful than they were in your own mind.
One of the absolute highlights of my recent experience [. . .] was working with the Puppet Kitchen. [They] were a joy to communicate with: prompt, clear, and kind. The creative process was smooth and collaborative.
