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.

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.

They always surpass expectations and deliver a product that is quality, and the process from start to finish is filled with a lot of laughter!
