PuppetART is located in Detroit’s Theater District, just a few blocks from the Michigan Opera Theater, Music Hall and the Gem and Century Theaters. The Center includes an intimate 70-person theater, a museum that accommodates a growing collection of puppets and a studio featuring various workshops.
Founded in 1998 by a group of puppeteers and artists trained in Russia, all members of the PuppetART troupe are masters of puppetry. PuppetART offers a repertoire of twelve productions, including one created for adult audiences. Performances feature hand, rod, shadow, floor tabletop and string or marionette puppets. All events at PuppetART combine a theater performance, museum admission and an optional workshop.
