Puppetkabob is an award-winning touring puppet company founded in 2001 by artist Sarah Frechette. Sarah is a puppeteer, costumer, fine artist and arts educator whose work has been experienced in Theaters, Museums, Art Galleries, TV and Film. Puppetkabob's show "The Snowflake Man" is inspired by New England farmer Wilson "Snowflake" Bentley, pioneer of snowflake photography. This UNIMA-USA award winning production blends czech-style marionettes, miniatures, a pop-up book and live storytelling to magical effect! Puppetkabob's Quilt inspired shadow show "Under Night Sky" unravels stories from the Underground Railroad, an Irish Memory Quilt and a colorful Rag Coat. Fairytale inspired rod puppet show "What The Moon Saw" is a combination of Hans Christian Anderson's Thumbelina and The Ugly Duckling.
Sarah Frechette's roser-style marionette "Wally" and "What The Moon Saw" puppets & sets were on display as part of 2018 Puppets: World on a String exhibit at the Shelburne Museum, VT. Sarah studied with Master Marionettist Albrecht Roser in Buoch, Germany; graduated from the University of Connecticut's unique Puppetry Arts Program; and creates costumes for stop-motion animation film and television on the side.
