Little Puppet Studio 
~ in the Berkshires of Massachusetts and bordering regions ~

Little Puppet Studio is supported by a grant from the Martha Boschen Porter Fund, a Fund of Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation.

Festivals

 Little Puppet Studio is a festival within your festival 

Little Puppet Studio arrives at your festival with a fleet of marionettes, props, and musical instruments for sound effects. A revolving group of multi-generational festival-goers becomes the puppeteers offering mini-vignettes to your larger audience. We perform varying mini-stories with a new mix of puppets every 15 minutes throughout the day.

Hands-on Street-Improv

In longer pre-registered workshops, parents can enjoy your festival while their children are creating with us. We arrive with stories, marionettes and props. Grownups deliver the children to the “studio” (festival designated area) at the advertised start time and return at the designated time to enjoy the show. Showtimes can be pre-billed as festival entertainment.
