Celebrate New Year’s Eve with a puppet show in Fairburn!

We will be performing Wish Tales at the Fairburn Branch of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library on Wednesday, December 31 at 11:00 am. Even if your child likes to make New Year’s Resolutions for better habits or behaviour, they still might need to learn the lesson of the Knee-High Man, that he is fine just the way he is. The show also tells the stories of the Frog Prince and the Little Orphan Animal.                                                                         60 Valley View Drive, Fairburn, GA 30213  (770)306-3138

We are thankful for the Fulton County Arts Council!

Piccadilly Puppets is happy to announce that we have received funding for the second half of 2014 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. It is wonderful to live in a county that 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. 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!
