Puppet Showplace Theater is New England’s center for puppetry arts. Each year, we present over 300 performances by professional puppet companies to audiences young and old at our intimate Brookline Village theater. Our touring productions reach thousands more at schools, libraries, theaters, and cultural centers throughout the Northeast region and beyond.
We offer workshops, classes, summer camps, and training opportunities to both children and adults, and we partner with local and emerging artists to develop new work.
In all the work we do, we strive to engage audiences of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities.
After 40+ years of operations, our theater has become a treasured cultural institution. Puppet Showplace is run by an experienced staff and volunteer board of trustees. We are supported by contributions from individual donors, local businesses, and foundation and government grants. From children’s birthday party performances to provocative Puppets at Night shows, our programming is designed to reach a large and diverse audience.
