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?

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

No, we're not doing "Frozen"! This is the Princess from "Wish Tales" in the snow in January 2014.
