National Marionette Theatre

National Marionette Theatre is one of the oldest continually-running marionette theaters in the United States. Founded in 1967 By artistic director David A. Syrotiak, this award-winning company has been entertaining and amazing audiences around the world with their imaginative productions for over forty years.

The company is based in Brattleboro, Vermont and specializes in adaptations of popular stories using marionettes as the performance medium. National Marionette Theatre travels with a fully self-contained theater complete with its own lighting and sound systems. All the presenter need supply is an adequate space to set up the stage, two electrical outlets on separate circuit breakers close to the performing space, and an audience! We'll do the rest.

NMT has performed for a diverse clientele over the years. From elementary schools to the Smithsonian in Washington DC to an outdoor piazza in Italy. Whatever the venue, NMT has a show that will fit your needs.
