I have been privileged to be involved with StoneLion Puppet Theatre for 10 years. I am continuosly amazed by the commitment StoneLion has toward teaching children of all ages about our planet and all of its inhabitants. I have been fortunate to be involved from behind the scenes as well as an audience member. My daughter loves watching and performing in shows. We look forward to many more years of StoneLion Puppet Theatre shows.

I am so happy to be associated with StoneLion Puppet Theater! I started as a fan of StoneLion and after seeing several shows and hosting performances as a librarian I just knew that I wanted to do more to work with them. The Artistic Director and puppeteers are a very talented, artistic and dramatic bunch. The puppets they create are accurate, educational, beautiful and most of all fun! As an audience member I have gotten to witness spectacles that I never would have dreamed of including giant puppet pageants with huge puppet trees, pirates and even floating puppet turtles. As a Board Member I have gotten to witness a worthwhile not-for-prophet arts organization grow and flourish and become a part of the community in a long lasting and deeply impacting way. Creating amazing puppet shows is just one of the many things StoneLion is doing. Using grant funds StoneLion is responsible for planning and executing many Green Festivals in Kansas City’s urban areas. They work with the Parks and Recreation Department to provide puppets shows, arts and crafts, community information and fun to families that might not have the opportunity to be touched by the arts if it wasn’t free. StoneLion Puppet Theater is also deeply committed to educating people about working to save our environment. Using grant funds they were able to provide 50 free puppet shows about clean water to Kansas schools. I am proud to be a fan, volunteer and Board Member of this amazing organization. I am already looking forward to seeing their next show!

I love the work that StoneLion has done in teaching kids the importance of saving the planet. This has been in something as simple as throwing trash in the trashcan and not on the ground. StoneLion teaches children in a language that they can understand and not above their heads or boring, I also have never seen a group of people that love and enjoy what they do. Thank you for all that you do for our kids.

I think that StoneLion should one day be a require event in all grade schools. Because we know that the earlier we can teach a child the easier it is for them to learn and retain the information.

My family enjoys the fun and creative shows of Stone Lion. The annual Mother's Day Picinc / puppet show is a FUN tradition in our family. We enjoy seeing the delighted faces of all the children in the audiences.

I particularly appreciate their 'Green Day' events. Environmental issues
are of interest to me and Stone Lion presents creative & informative programming for ALL ages.

Stone Lion is a FEEL GOOD theater company. I eagerly look for their upcoming events and am proud to take my family along!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I read in their newsletters that Stone Lion serves many inner-city, underprivilged children. This is awesome, creative outreach in a very positive way. This company seems to 'give-back' to the Greater Kansas City area. I am very impressed.

In addition the email blasts (to their subscriber list), I would recommend they 'poster' areas where families frequent (i.e. day care centers, grocery stores, etc). Getting the word out in different ways would enhance their audience base.

I am chairman of the education committee of Friends of Lakeside Nature Center, the support group for the nature center. StoneLion Puppets puts on a puppet show for our Earth Day Celebration each year. In return, FOLNC provides environmental touch tables at the annual Green Festival events. This is a wonderful example of cooperation between environmental groups, making each other's events more interesting to the public.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

observing the enchantment of children attending the party for the planet -- and Lakeside's Earth Day.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their utter willingness to help. For example, their biggest event will be held on Mother's Day -- but they are willing to lend equipment for an event at Lakeside on the previous day.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Delightful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Change the world, one puppet show at at time.

I am new to StoneLion Puppet Theatre and I can honestly say that "I enjoy and am inspired by my job!" What a privilege it is to work with such talented and dedicated people! Recently, I have had the pleasure to see StoneLion Puppet Theatre in action. The performances are family friendly - entertaining for both the kids AND the adults! Themes range from children stories, to science, as well as the environment. Behind the scenes is even more impressive. The members of this non-profit are so creative and multi-talented. If you haven't yet had the opportunity to see a performance or attend one of their festivals - mark your calendar! Get out of the house and check them out! It's worth it!!!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

it's honest commitment to its mission and integrity.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, creative, smart, and happy.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

impact more children - through workshops, festivals, and pageants!

Ways to make it better...

I had a front row seat.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Getting the word out about what StoneLion Puppet Theatre has to offer the community.

One thing I'd also say is that...

StoneLion is always looking for more volunteers and donations to make what they do possible. They are the REAL DEAL - so if you are interested in donating time or money they are a great Non-Profit to consider.
