I have performed at the Puppetry Arts Center of the Palm Beaches at each of its all too many locations. I've averaged three different visits a year with a variety of shows that incorporated hand, hand & rod,and shadow puppets as well as marionettes. In the earlier years, we were able to present a full week of performances ending with 2 performances on Saturday. Through the years, the various moves made it difficult to maintain the audience levels, Each relocation required a great deal of work to transform the newest site into a viable theatre space. Each move also required considerable monetary outlays - several moves required costs for construction and relocating plumbing for public restrooms, etc. Jan and Bill Timmis have consistantly strived to provide a home for economically priced family entertainment that also sought to teach basic human values through the variety of performances they presented at the Puppetry Arts Center. Their dedication to the Center is all-encompassing.
