Piccadilly Puppets specializes in educational entertainment! Our puppeteers are not only trained professionals in the art form, they are Teaching Artists as well! We are trying to meet your needs during COVID-19, whether we do smaller indoor shows, perform outdoors or share a show virtually, paired with a live demonstration so that we can engage students with a Q&A! We want to know what will help YOU teach, so if you have an idea for a short lesson taught by puppets, let us know.

Our shows are carefully developed to enhance Georgia Standards of Excellence, with guidance from collaborators like Arts For Learning (Young Audiences), Project WET and the Callaway Gardens Butterfly Center.
This page has a list of our shows with recommended grade levels and subject matter, and links to the study guides. Our study guides are written for elementary schools, but preschools can find useful material there as well. Each show has its own page with more information (except for the Biblical shows).
