If it's a classic story or a children's show, the Rainbow Puppets have it. Victor Herbert's "Toyland!" and Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf." Mother Goose shares rhymes and stories like "The Three Little Pigs" and "Little Red Riding Hood." And if you like Pirates and Mermaids... we have them, too.
The Rainbow Puppets are experts at taking the complicated and making it super-easy to understand. Our puppets help explain the complexity of the Amazon Rain Forest, the rise and fall of the Dinosaurs, the wonder of the Wright Brothers' first flight, the excitement of space travel and the delicacy of the Chesapeake Bay.
From the beginning, the Rainbow Puppet company has stressed the value and importance of every creature on the planet. Every person... every creature is unique and special. Our anti bullying program "Speak Out - The Search for Gold" has become the go-to resource for many schools. Then there are our classic tellings of the Noah and Jonah stories.
Rainbow Puppet Productions creates shows that enlighten, entertain, and educate through original music, puppets and dance.
