Back to School!

Kindergarten students show shadow puppets that they made in a workshop.

Piccadilly Puppets has many educational shows and workshops! Bring us to your school this year! We have discounted prices for Title One schools.

Bring Piccadilly Puppets to your town with a Vibrant Communities Grant!

grantWould you like to bring Piccadilly Puppets to your school, library or non-profit organization in Fall 2018 or Spring 2019? If your organization is located in a county in which no organization received an FY18 GCA Project, Partner or Arts Education Grant, you can apply for a Vibrant Communities grant from the Ga Council for the Arts. The grants are for arts programming; why not have us do puppet shows and/or workshops?

Thank you to the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs!

Piccadilly Puppets is a proud recipient of funding from the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs! We provide puppet performances throughout the City of Atlanta, and the funds help us to cover some expenses, so that we can keep our shows affordable. Funding also enables us to offer discounts to schools that receive Title One funding and other venues in those neighborhoods (such as libraries), and occasionally offer free shows in underserved parts of the city.

Thank you so much to the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs for helping us to educate and entertain children in Atlanta through the art of puppetry!

Puppet Palooza September 24

Puppet Palooza is a fabulous afternoon filled with puppet shows and puppet activities! It will take place Sunday, September 24 from 1:00-5:00pm at the Clarkston Community Center

Some of Atlanta’s top puppeteers will perform short pieces in a variety style show. Shows will be ongoing throughout the day, along with puppet-making and other games for kids. There will be all kinds of interesting puppets and puppet-related items for sale, as well as concessions.

Featuring:

Tickets may be purchased at the door or at the link below: $10 adults, $5 children.

Proceeds go to the Atlanta Puppetry Guild, a local chapter of the Puppeteers of America, an organization that promotes the art of puppetry. The Atlanta Puppetry Guild gives local puppeteers and anyone interested in the art form a chance to meet, share ideas, and support one another. One way we do this is through offering scholarships to members to further their craft. Puppet Palooza is a fundraiser for the guild scholarship fund; a percentage of the proceeeds also goes to the Clarkston Community Center.

Piccadilly Puppets received funding for 2016 from the Fulton County Board of Commissioners, through the guidance of the Fulton County Arts Council. With this help, we provided 63 shows and workshops throughout all six Fulton county districts and performed for almost 4000 people in Fulton alone. We performed for schools, libraries, festivals and many other events. We were able to perform in underserved neighborhoods at reduced prices, and introduced our “Pop-up Show” performed out of our  Puppet van!

These grants benefit not only our organization, but more importantly YOU, as our audience. Please join us in thanking the Board of Commissioners and the Arts Council. If you live in Fulton and enjoy the arts, please let your Commissioner know!

 

Piccadilly Puppets receives Fulton County grant!

Piccadilly Puppets is happy to announce that we have received funding for 2016 from the Fulton County Board of Commissioners, through the guidance of the Fulton County Arts Council. Fulton County is the leading public funder for the arts in the State of Georgia. We are thankful that our county understands the importance of the arts to our community. Our grant from the Fulton County Arts Council supplements our main source of income, which is the fees we charge for performances. This enables us to hire skilled, professional puppeteers and pay them a competitive wage, while still keeping our prices affordable to most groups. We can also give back to the community through occasional discounted or even free performances in Fulton County. Through the application and review process and final reports, the arts council also helps us to set goals, to meet artistic standards, to be financially responsible, and to be held accountable for the way we spent the funds at the end of each year. These grants benefit not only our organization, but more importantly YOU, as our audience. Please join us in thanking the Board of Commissioners and the Arts Council. If you live in Fulton and enjoy the arts, please let your Commissioner know!
