Norwich Puppet Theatre is a producing theatre company, renowned for creating high quality puppetry shows for family and early years audiences. We use both traditional and contemporary puppet craft to bring stories to life for our audiences, using rod, glove, shadow and marionette puppetry, as well as object theatre and animation.

One of only a handful of dedicated puppet theatres in England, Norwich Puppet Theatre is a hub for leading international puppeteers and theatre makers and we have collaborated with some of the country’s best children’s theatres and puppet companies, as well as professional freelance puppeteers and makers.

Please see below for information about the shows currently available to book for festivals and venues. Our productions can be performed in a variety of settings, including theatres, studio spaces, schools, libraries and community centres.
