Take a Giant Leap!
An all-new production opens at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum on July 23. Take a Giant Leap celebrates our fascination with space from the time we first gazed up to the stars to us landing on the moon and then setting our sites to Mars. It's a fun-filled song and dance extravaganza with some terrific new puppets!
An adventure with the Tuskegee Airmen

Available and on tour right now!
Based on the east coast of Virginia, we are frequently seen in Williamsburg, Hampton, Newport News, Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Richmond, the Eastern Shore, and the Outer Banks. While we are headquartered in Hampton Roads, Virginia, we tour nationally and have been seen in the smallest of venues to the grandest opera houses!
We are currently on tour with Toyland! with Mickey Rooney, Amazon Adventures with Geoffrey Holder, Jonah, The Wright Brothers, Creatures Great and Small, and Speak Out. Many of our original songs and stories by company founder David Messick are available on CD.
Rainbow Productions began in 1977 producing original children's musicals for libraries. These library shows later grew into huge musicals including a tour of "Babes in Toyland" featuring a cast of over 100 performers. We now provide educational puppet programs and workshops for schools, host an annual puppet festival, and present elaborate presentations in select theaters across the country.
Rainbow Puppet Productions is a member of Puppeteers of America and is a charter member of the Puppet Arts Center of Virginia (PACOV).
We produce touring theater productions for schools, libraries, theaters, churches, synagogues, museums and other venues. Our mission is to entertain first, while we educate and inspire young minds to respect other people and the world around us.
