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.

Houses of Worship

 Our style of puppetry provides a rich opportunity for congregants to work together in service of the larger community. Shows can be offered to preschoolers or the public, or be brought to nursing homes or family shelters.

Intergenerational

For houses of worship, we work with material that is determined by your leadership and is specific to your religious tenets. We follow all guidelines expected in your setting. We are glad to work with scripture or develop a theme with you. 

All Faiths

Your puppetry event will carry a message that reinforces your scriptural objectives for your religious school students. A series will make it possible for your students to craft their own marionettes or write a story for their performance.
