CityParks PuppetMobile, the oldest continually operating company of its kind in the country, presents free performances and puppet-making workshops in neighborhood parks, recreation centers and schools throughout New York City. 

Because of COVID-19, City Parks Foundation is taking precautionary measures in all of our programs. 

Please note that PuppetMobile performances of #LittleRed’sHood will be delayed. We will continue to assess the situation and provide further program updates as they become available. Sites that were confirmed for a PuppetMobile performance will be contacted directly with updates. Applications are still open for performances in September and October and will be reviewed and considered on a rolling basis. Please email for any assistance.

2020 Puppetmobile Applications

During the 2020 season the PuppetMobile will present the tale of #LittleRed’sHood.

About #LittleRed’sHood

In this story, Little Red is a smart, young city dweller who is obsessed with her smartphone. Wulfric, a misunderstood wolf with a sweet tooth, crosses paths with Little Red on her travels to deliver her Grandma cupcakes and the trouble begins. This story offers a comical lesson on the importance to disconnect from our digital lives and enjoy real life moment with friends and family.

About the PuppetMobile

All PuppetMobile performances are free of charge and open to the general public. No reservations are necessary.

City Parks Foundation and the PuppetMobile are committed to serving neighborhoods in historically under-resourced areas and priority will be given to performance requests in these areas. Please note that PuppetMobile performances can only take place in New York City parks, recreation centers and schoolyards. All performances must be open to the public. The PuppetMobile is not available for private functions.

Generous private support is provided by The Weininger Foundation, the Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation, and The Prescott Fund for Children and Youth. This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.


We bring New Yorkers together in their parks by offering free programs. Although our programming is temporarily suspended, parks remain open to find solace, to exercise, and to remain healthy. Please give now if you can so that we can be back in parks soon.
