New Bern Puppets presents marionette performances spanning a wide range of genres to meet the needs and interests of our audience. We also offer customized shows for children’s birthday parties.
Fee for shows is dependent on the number of performances, hours, and travel time. Please contact Dennis for more information. New Bern Puppets carries a $1,000,000 general liability insurance policy.
New Bern Puppets has done shows featuring characters such as Harry Potter, Hansel and Gretel, a witch, a mummy, the Frankenstein monster, the Great Pumpkin, Blackbeard’s ghost, and more. Ask us about bringing a fairy tale to life or inquire about having a custom show created.
We have many 18th Century characters and do various Colonial and US Revolutionary War shows. Many are based on Colonial North Carolina history with a focus on Tryon Palace. For example, we have a show featuring President George Washington’s Southern Tour in 1791 but scripts can be adjusted to cover events elsewhere.
