Using the power of puppetry to impact positive social change.
Our puppetry infused learning opportunities and performances inspire, challenge, empower, support expression and encourage empathy in our audiences and participants.
W.P. Puppet Theatre Society (WPTS) values originality, adaptability, diversity, imagination, communication, curiosity, collaboration, critical thinking, best practices and creativity.
We believe puppets have a special role as representatives and that art has a responsibility and opportunity to mirror and shape reality.
We experiment with the definition of ‘puppet art’ and showcase the potential of this medium valuing high aesthetics and inquiry and skills-based learning.
What People Are Saying
"Art has the ability to heal and transform. Art has the ability to soothe your soul… The process of doing the mask and evaluating who am I helped get back in touch with who I lost. "
— Eli, a VIEW participant
"The idea was special and unique… it was the first time I enjoyed art, like that I can hide secrets… Everything was special, the whole thing. It made you accept yourself, all sides… love yourself. "
