Puppetry

Elsenpeter Marionettes, headed by Mr. Richard Elsenpeter, is a professional full-time School Assembly company who has entertained millions of school children with live programs for over 140 years. The Elsenpeter Marionettes specialize in children’s classics and adapt stories with which most children are familiar. Each program is especially written for the Marionettes theatre. Every detail has been carefully designed to achieve a perfect dramatic production in miniature. Richard’s skillful manipulation of the Marionettes transforms the 2 foot tale, hand carved, wooden dolls into living characters with definite personalities.

These programs can be purely for fun and entertainment or to celebrate our differences. You can also use them to teach your students about Making Good Choices, Anti Bullying, Goal Setting, Respecting Others or any other topics you wish us to cover.
