CactusHead Puppets did a great job at Danbury Library. The kids loved the show, and enjoyed the workshop as well. I highly recommend them. --- Cindy Lappala - Danbury Library
CactusHead Puppets currently offers five touring shows:
The Pied Piper of Hamelin
Just So Stories
Little Red Riding Hood
The Emperor's New Clothes
The Tale of Juan Bobo
Each show is about 30 minutes long, and after the performance the puppeteers lead a Q&A with the audience about how the puppets were made and how the story was adapted. Please visit our website for more info on each of the shows.
We also offer puppet making workshops that can be taught after a performance, or as a stand alone program. Workshop length and content is always tailored to meet the size and age of your group.
CactusHead Puppets is a puppet company based in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts. Puppeteers John and Megan Regan are both graduates of UConn's Puppetry Arts Program, and have been performing together as CactusHead Puppets since 2010.
