We would, once again, like to invite everyone to the rebirth of the Puppetry Guild of Northeastern Ohio! The organization, which was founded in 1975 as the local branch of “Puppeteers of America”, was one of the strongest puppetry groups in the United States. Dormant for the last several years, the Puppetry Guild of Northeastern Ohio is gearing up for its first event of 2017 and we would love to see you there!
We are looking to rebuild the organization and to create a wonderfully creative and educational support group for everyone that has an interest in the art of puppetry! From professional performers, to beginners, puppet collectors and anyone who would love to learn more about puppetry, all are welcome.
Puppeteers, Theater Professionals, Students, Collectors, & Everyone that has an interest in the art of puppetry!
