Why do YOU believe in Puppet Showplace Theater's mission?
Here's what our trustees had to say! 

"We go to Puppet Showplace Theater to experience incredibly engaging shows.  I've never seen kids so excited to learn about letters or to help puppeteers improvise - at an early age, kids get to learn how fun it is to create and perform! -Nora, Strategy & Marketing Consultant

"I give to the theater so that children, who might not otherwise have a chance, can see LIVE puppetry.  Puppets are amazing and meld with many traditions and styles. All that theater has to offer can be experienced through the puppet theater.  And, as a member of the board I know that every budget dollar is thoughtfully spent to meet the mission of the theater."    -Ayanna, Attorney & Administrative Assistant

"I fell in love with puppetry when I was 8, the same age my son is now. Puppet Showplace Theater is one of the few places that truly celebrates, preserves, and advances the art of puppetry in America so I am honored to have it in my neighborhood and to serve it as a trustee and donor." -Alison, Composer & Film Scoring Professor
