It is the goal of Adam Swartz Puppets
  • To entertain and educate as many people as possible.

  • To coordinate our efforts with as many like-minded people as possible.

  • To make the world a better place: safer, kinder, more understanding, more accepting, cleaner, happier, more thoughtful and creative. 

That about sums it up!

A library patron made his own "Bucket" puppet! What a pair!

Be involved in our biggest production to date! We have great news. Award winning author, Katherine Applegate, has approved our stage adaptation of her novel,Wishtree. To make this happen, we'll need to build some serious puppets and put them on a serious stage! Wishtree is the story of a diverse community rallying together, and we want our community to be involved in telling it. If you're interested in participating in our production as a donor, cast or crew member, or want to learn more, contact us!

Meet the Wooglefoof, created for The Prince's New Pet with FUSE Productions. Check out photos from this production, and more custom puppet builds here.
