New Year, New Shows, New Challenge!

2014 is an important year for Puppet Showplace as we celebrate 40 years as New England's puppet theatre.

...Help us celebrate!

New Matching Challenge!

Three donors have joined forces to create a $10,000 challenge grant. If we can raise an additional $10,000 by the end of March, that money will be matched with donations from the Adler Family Fund at the Boston Community Foundation, Sarah and Joel Lamstein, and the Gretchen's House.

Join these generous donors by making a tax-deductable gift of any amount by the end of March.


Your generous gift will strengthen our programming this season and will help secure the our future, preserving this wonderful art form for the next generation.

Your past contributions have allowed Puppet Showplace to expand our programming to include new works by local artists, professional classes and workshops for all ages, and Puppets @ Night performances for adults and teens.


Ask your employer if they have a donation matching program for non-profit giving. If Puppet Showplace Theatre is on their list, your gift will grow! If the theatre is not listed, contact us at
