The best non-profit organization I have ever worked with! Professional, yet friendly, steady yet flexible, hard-working yet thoroughly fun! The shows are entertaining for all ages, the workshops are easy but still challenging. They have a local presence, but an international reputation for excellence. They are truly wonderful, and I'm always amazed and their end product.
Stonelion is a wonderful organization that brings art, puppetry, and environmental messaging to kids and adults alike.
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.
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!
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.
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!!!
