Review for Stonelion Puppet Theatre, Kansas City, MO, USA
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've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
attending shows with my toddler and watching the joy on her face each time a new puppet comes on stage.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
give them money to expand their incredible efforts.
