Barefoot Puppets

Barefoot Puppet Theatre

November 2014: Our new website is about to go live! Please be advised that some of the links on our current page are not working. If you have any questions or require learning guides or hi-res images, please call us at 804-358-3377. As we transition, you may not be able to download from this site. You can also contact us via email, if you prefer. Thanks for your patience!


We love to perform...and we do workshops and residencies, too! Our award-winning puppet shows tour all over the East Coast (and beyond!) to theatres, schools, libraries, children's museums and more. Our performances bring to life world folktales, classic tales with a twist and original works with imaginative scripts that are well researched and fun! Educators, students, librarians, and theatre directors give enthusiastic reviews of our touring programs each year and invite us back again and again. 

We are based in Richmond, Virginia, where we build all of our puppets and staging. We love performing for new audiences and are doubly pleased to be invited back again and again for return engagements. If you have questions, comments, or suggestions, please contact us. We are always thrilled to hear from you!
