Summer Show

 

Each year we write, create, build and perform a large summer pageant-play-extravaganza. These performances last about an hour, include an ensemble of professional musicians who create an original score of music and involve a cast of puppeteers, which has included as many as twenty-eight performers. Our summer extravaganza is attended by over 16,000 people!

Through our annual summer performance, Paperhand Puppet Intervention helps create a community that shares picnic blankets, ideas, experiences and a love of wonder.

GREENSBORO HERE WE COME!

Carolina Theatre of Greensboro

Sat September 17, 7 pm. Sunday September 18, 3 pm

In 2016 we will spread the puppet love and expand our summer show beyond the Forest Theatre in Chapel Hill and the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh…to the Carolina Theatre of Greensboro! For the first time will travel away from our homes and our families with a heap of puppeteers, puppets, props, and musicians and bring our summer extravaganza to another city!

Spread the word! We’d love to see them Greensboro this coming summer!
