City Parks Foundation offers a traveling puppet show, CityParksPuppetMobile, the oldest continually operating company of its kind in the country, which presents free performances and puppet-making workshops in neighborhood parks, recreation centers and schools throughout New York City.
CityParks PuppetMobile, one of the only traveling puppet theaters in the country, brings Swedish Cottage
productions and puppet making workshops to all corners of the city, free of charge.
ABOUT THE PUPPETMOBILE
Traveling the five boroughs in a PuppetMobile equipped with a stage and staff of professional puppeteers, we bring entertainment to 50,000 children and families each year.
Performances are held in parks, playgrounds and recreation centers. Puppet making workshops are offered where children learn about the art of puppetry and create their own puppets.
Each year our puppeteers conduct artist residencies in Parks Department recreation centers, providing a unique arts-in-education experience to children in grades K - 4.
Residencies include professional marionette performances by our puppeteers, as well as daily workshops and comprehensive 10-12 session workshops where puppeteers teach and have direct contact with the children.
Check back here for more information on the next season of PuppetMobile. In the meantime, head on over to the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre to see a show.
