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.
COMING SOON: CINDERELLA SAMBA
This spring and summer the CityParks PuppetMobile will present free performances of Cinderella Samba
in parks across the five boroughs! A modernized revue of the classic tale set in the lush landscape of Brazil, this timeless fairy tale finds Cinderella and her Prince in a Samba contest at the Carnival Ball.
City Parks Foundation and the PuppetMobile are committed to serving neighborhoods in historically under-resourced areas and priority will be given to performance requests in these areas. Please note that PuppetMobile performances can only take place in New York City parks, recreation centers and schoolyards. All performances must be open to the public. The PuppetMobile is not available for private functions.
The period to request a PuppetMobile has ended.
ABOUT THE PUPPETMOBILE
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.
