Barefoot Puppet Theatre's award-winning performances have thrilled audiences throughout the country and into Canada since 1997. Educators give enthusiastic reviews of their programs and invite them back again and again to the delight of their students! Their touring programs feature imaginative scripts, innovative staging, original music, beautifully crafted puppets, and fun. Programs augment curriculum in many subject areas, and a Footnotes Learning Guide accompanies each show. Customized residency programs and workshops are able to blend science, literature, and/or writing with theatre for a complete hands-on learning experience. The puppeteers are always thrilled to share more about puppetry during post-show discussions and regularly give backstage tours to groups.
