Below you will find information on some of the best known puppets and puppeteers to have ever graced the stages of this world! Though there are countless others who may never be listed here. It is the efforts of many young and old alike,  who have kept and will continue to keep the Art of Puppetry alive! I thank them and I thank all you puppeteers to be for your creativity, imagination and belief for it is these in large measure that prompt and inspire the Art which is Puppetry and  which remains at the heart and soul of the puppet, and our need to communicate and share our humanness with one another!
You are Magic my friends!
