The Eulenspiegel (OIL-N-SPEEGEL) Puppets delight audiences with a large repertoire of international folktales and historical fiction, including Freedom Star; Gertie’s Journey on the Underground Railroad, Sal Fink, Catfish Wrangler, The Amazing Adventures of Willy the Woolly, Stories and Cuentos, The Snow Queen, and many others.

We’re based in Iowa and tour nationally and internationally. We’re known for original scripts, whimsical scenery, live music, and beautifully crafted puppets of many types.

You can bring us to your community for any or all of the following:

  • Performances in schools, festivals, and events for both children and adults.
  • Workshops in puppet construction, writing, and performing.
  • Residencies that culminate in a professional performance and/or teach aspects of puppetry.


We’ll help you pick the activity that best suits your event or community!
