Puppets Play Corner


We can supply a unique marquee to create a magical storytelling puppet play space which houses a marionette theatre/ hand puppet podium or light box for shadow puppetry.

Next event: Little Day Out Festival - Ross Reserve, Memorial Drive, Noble Park

27th September 2015

12.30-2pm


In this space kids and parents together make puppets and can experiment and explore with their own hand made puppets either silhouettes or hand puppets in the marionette and puppet theatre set up in the space. The Puppet facilitator workshops stories with the participants and encourages people to use their imagination to create puppet stories and perform for each other. 

We have many fantastic artists that work on The Dreaming Space Team, below is our Artist Spot Light:
