Little Puppet Studio is a festival within your festival! We offer two styles of festival participation for your multitudes, each a comprehensive arts experience. Festival puppeteering is led by Regina D. Mason, with an assistant by her side.
Hands-on Street-Improv for your Festival
Little Puppet Studio arrives at your festival with a fleet of marionettes, props, and musical instruments for sound effects. We perform a different mini-story with a new mix of puppets every 15 minutes throughout the day. A revolving group of multi-generational festival-goers become the puppeteers offering these mini-vignettes to your larger audience.
Price is determined by agreement. Festivals can hire Little Puppet Studio at a flat pre-determined rate, or, participants can individually pay directly to Little Puppet Studio as they join in, a typical rate being $3-5 per participant per 15 minute show.
Upon receipt of your deposit, we provide you with a contract and a printable PDF flyer highlighting showtimes, for your organization to post around your setting.
Pre-Registered Festival Workshops
In our longer, 1.5 hour pre-registered workshops, parents can enjoy your festival while their children are creating with us. We arrive with stories and associated marionettes and props. Parents deliver their children to the “Studio” (festival designated area) at the advertised start time, and return at the designated time to enjoy the show. We work well in barns, tents, or rustic classrooms.
A typical Festival Workshop schedule includes 3 to 4 shows in a day, each one a different story and performance. The shows can be offered as scheduled entertainment for festival goers, or as a private event for workshop participants’ families. We can cater to your needs. Of course, parents are welcome to register and participate alongside their children!
Rates for Festival Workshops with pre-registered participants differ according to festival structure and individual program design. Upon receipt of your deposit, we work with you to choose the context of the performance stories. We provide a contract and a custom printable PDF flyer for your organization to post around your setting, highlighting plays and showtimes. You can use this flyer in your advertising for workshop participants.
