SUMMER 2020

During this unusual summer, your friends at Eulenspiegel Puppet Theatre have planned an entirely different type of season! We've made friends with the idea of online workshops and shows and are doing our best to approach these with the utmost creativity. We invite you to exercise your creativity by joining us!

The summer schedule includes classes and workshops for all ages, live streamed shows including a new pop-up book show, and hopefully, before summer's end, a brand new Drive-In puppet show!

Summer Neighborhood Tour 2020!

Thanks to support from HNI, ACT, Green State Credit Union, and many generous friends donating to the Teri Jean Breitbach Memorial Fund, we are once again bringing puppet shows to the area. Instead of the show we had originally planned, we are offering our new Drive-In Puppet Show to avoid the problems of distancing.
