Puppetry Classes Bring Out the Best in Kids (and Adults)!

Imagine creating a character of your own design, then bringing that character to life before friends and family.  The Puppet Co. offers several classes for kids, and for adults that want to make puppets with kids. Both puppet making and performance are taught by the experts that create the exquisite productions on the Puppet Co. stage.  Click titles for details.


Leprechauns & Treasure Puppetry Workshop
