Our mission is to entertain and educate the children and families of South Carolina through the unique art of puppetry. In addition to presenting shows in our theatre, we perform hundreds of educational shows at schools, libraries, festivals and special events throughout the state.

We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization and rely on grants and donations to fulfill our mission. We hope you will consider becoming a supporter! Every gift, regardless of size, makes a big difference.
