Puppet Shakespeare produced one of the most extraordinary performances that our teachers and students have enjoyed in years! The entire cast was gracious and professional to work with, and it was a complete delight to host them at our school. The wit and playfulness of their take on Hamlet held our students’ attention from the very beginning, and every member of the troupe made certain to make Shakespeare accessible to our group

The Mission

to show every single young person that Shakespeare doesn't have to be boring!

Puppet Shakespeare's unique take on the Bard combines a first folio approach to the text with modern references and humor in order to highlight the living nature of Shakespeare's work in the modern age.


The Shows

The Puppet Shakespeare Players have been able to get to the heart of Shakespeare in all his bawdiness, silliness and tragedy.
