The Puppet Company

Puppet Fabrication & Performances

Our puppet theater uses hand puppets, rod puppets, body puppets, marionettes, and shadow puppets to stage both original works and traditional children’s stories. The Puppet Co. Playhouse at Glen Echo Park is one of the few theatres designed exclusively for puppet shows and is the only year-round theater between New York and Atlanta dedicated entirely to the art of puppetry. This unique Washington D.C. area resource brings wonderful music and literature to life for students, teachers, and parents through live, fully-staged productions of some of the finest children's theater in the country. The Puppet Co. has approximately 20 productions in our Legacy repertory, including classics such as “The Wizard of Oz” and “Cinderella," and has been debuting new productions since 2021. In 2022, over 16,500 people attended a show or event at the playhouse!
