City Parks Foundation offers a traveling puppet show, CityParks PuppetMobile, the oldest continually operating company of its kind in the country, which presents free performances and puppet-making workshops in neighborhood parks, recreation centers and schools throughout New York City.


Tales of Brier Rabbit follows the adventures of notorious trickster Brier Rabbit, who is once again up to no good. Deceiving and stealing from his fellow animal friends, Brier Rabbit thinks he's much too clever to ever get caught. However, in this modern adaptation of the American folk tale, Brier Rabbit's pals are on to his tricks, and set out to teach him a lesson he won't soon forget!

CityParks PuppetMobile, one of the only traveling puppet theaters in the country, brings Swedish Cottage productions and puppet making workshops to all corners of the city, free of charge.

Traveling the five boroughs in a PuppetMobile equipped with a stage and staff of professional puppeteers, we bring entertainment to 50,000 children and families each year.

Performances are held in parks, playgrounds and recreation centers. Puppet making workshops are offered where children learn about the art of puppetry and create their own puppets.
