Mission: The mission of The Paul Mesner Puppets is to perform quality, humorous, honest, and entertaining productions of classic and contemporary stories that stir the creativity and imagination within each person; educating children, families and educators in the art of live puppetry.
Programs: Schools, libraries and museums hire Paul Mesner Puppets to come to their location and perform our puppet shows. This saves time and cost of transportation for schools. We bring the entire production with us; stage, set, lights and sound. We offer teaching guides for all productions. Touring shows this year will include True Story of the 3 Little Pigs by A. Wolf, The Stinky Cheese Man, Rapunzel, Saint George and the Dragon, Puss in Boots, Wiley & the Hairy Man, Anansi the Spider, Little Red Riding Hood, and Old Mother Hubbard. We also offer a two-week puppet residency to universities and colleges that consists of learning how to operate life size puppets and culminates in presenting the Gilbert & Sullivan opera, "The Mikado" or "Hansel and Gretel" by Engelbert Humperdinck. Two touring groups travel all over the United States and last year for the first time in Europe. The fee we charge generally covers all the expenses for travel, room and board.
PM Puppets is the greatest place, wonderful people and excellent puppet theater for all ages. The adaptation of beloved stories is extremely well done. they are miracle workers. Take you kids!!! Read the story ahead if you can. It is magical to see even very young children get the humor and the point of the stories. We have been going several years and my grandson has been in the Nativity and hopes to do so again. This organization deserves all the support we can give it in whatever way we can. Thank you Paul and Mike and everyone else who makes it all happen.
