presentation of

Peppi and the Pop-Up Dragon

“Every story is kept short, the plot line clear and simple, and the characterizations vivid. The humor is never heavy handed. It respects the children’s intelligence.” --Sy Syna, “Weekend”

puppet assembly show sets.

Young students love puppets. Penny Jones takes the art of puppetry to its ultimate expression with her Early Childhood Puppet Theatre production of Peppi and the Pop-Up Dragon, a delightful story presented for large student audiences in the auditorium.

This show can stand alone or be a great introduction to an entire puppetry program residence, including:

  • Professional Puppet Shows
  • Classroom workshops
  • Professional development for adults
Students increase their literacy while enjoying the artistry of an amazing puppet show. Teachers see a model in the assembly show, and in other classroom Shoe-Box shows which they can aspire to. And Penny shows them simple and easy puppet-making in her staff development workshop.
See Peppi and the Pop-Up Dragon puppet show with your students. Then learn how she puts such a show together in a staff development. You'll find out how to do your own shows with your students, quickly, simply and easily. As you develop your own library of books, develop your own shoe box puppet shows for each classic fairy tale and modern favorite.

2 assembly performances of
Peppi and the Pop-Up Dragon in a day: $1,515
(travel may be added for shows outside the NYC area)

"The... puppets are winsome, the sets uncluttered, the story line direct..."
