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, pop-up paper art, music 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. This production blends hand-held lights, illustrated paper puppets, composed music, and character storytelling to create a style of cinematic puppetry that flows like film.
Puppetkabob's rod puppet show "What The Moon Saw" is a combination of Hans Christian Anderson's Thumbelina and The Ugly Duckling. In collaboration with the Puppet Showplace Theater in Brookline, MA ~ this show was awarded an NEFA touring grant in 2014!
