Activating imaginations through the power of puppetry since 1997! We tour shows, workshops, and residencies to theatres, schools, museums, libraries, and more!
Barefoot Puppet Theatre has toured award-winning programs to theatres, schools, libraries, children's museums and more since 1997. Children, families, educators, librarians, and theatre directors give enthusiastic reviews of our programs and invite us back again and again. Audiences love our innovative, hand-crafted puppets and beautifully built staging and scenery.
Our touring shows can adapt to a variety of spaces. We work with each venue to co-create a fully theatrical experience wherever we perform. Whether we are in theatres with state-of-the-art facilities or a "gymnacafetorium," we come prepared to create the best experience for our audiences.
We have performed throughout the country (and a bit beyond!). Notable venues include The Smithsonian Discovery Theater, The Puppet Showplace Theatre in Boston, The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and The Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta. We have also performed at numerous puppetry festivals throughout the country. In 2008, we made our international debut at the Puppets Up! festival in Ontario, Canada. (We've even been invited back to Broadway numerous times…well, Broadway, Virginia!) From state-of-the-art theatres to your kitchen table, Barefoot Puppet Theatre would be thrilled to perform for you!
