Support New Works!

Who are the SUPERSTARS of Puppet Showplace? The AUDIENCE of course! That means YOU make all of our programs possible, including our Incubator program for new works. With the help of generous donors and foundations, Puppet Showplace Resident Artist Brad Shur will premiere his new interactive puppet show "Cardboard Explosion!" on January 9, 2016 during the "New Year, New Shows" series. Invest in puppetry during our Superstars Campaign!

Dear Friends,

After dozens of test runs and hundreds of prototypes, my new show "Cardboard Explosion!" will be ready to debut in January 2016. It's an interactive choose-your-own adventure, and I can't wait for YOU to become the show's SUPERSTARS! 

Each year, Puppet Showplace Theater invests thousands of dollars in local artists developing innovative new work. Puppet Showplace is the only theater in New England that provides this kind of support to puppeteers like me.  

Your generous contributions help artists every step of the way by funding production grants, rehearsal space, and other critical support. None of this would be possible without YOU!

Superstars Campaign as of today:

44 Donors = $4,875

With your help, we can reach our year goal of raising $15,000 by January 3rd!

Your gift ensures that audiences of all ages will leave "Cardboard Explosion!" inspired and ready to create, and that Puppet Showplace will remain a national leader in fostering innovative productions.

Thank you for making the future of puppetry bright!
