Declared “one of the finest puppet companies in the world” by Observer theater critic Elaine Liner, these professional masters of marionettes and handlers of hand puppets have been pursuing the art of fine puppetry since 1973. Boasting one of the country’s largest collections of antique marionettes, the troupe works in tandem with the Dallas Children’s Theater to put on some of the craziest puppet shows you’ll ever see outside your dreams. (They also fabricate custom puppets, if you have a recipient in mind who wouldn’t be totally creeped out by becoming a dummy.)
