The Boston Area Guild of Puppetry - Dedicated to celebrating and advancing the art of puppetry!

Sunday, Sept. 25, 5:30 PM
at the Puppet Showplace Theatre
32 Station Street
Brookline, MA 617-731-6400

Behind the Scenes with National Marionette Theatre

For our special program, performers from National Marionette Theatre will show us a rare glimpse backstage as they strike their set for Beauty and the Beast.  One of the oldest continually-running marionette companies in the United States, they are renowned for their beautiful hand-carved marionettes, lush scenery, and magical stage effects. They are performing all weekend at Puppet Showplace, so you can come earlier in the day to see their show, then come to the guild meeting to see how the magic happens. David Syrotiak will talk about the production and answer questions.

There will be Show and Tell, and a potluck dinner during the break, so please bring something to share. We will also talk about the recent regional puppetry festival, and the upcoming Honk Parade. Hope to see you there!

Contact John Lechner for more information.

The Boston Area Guild of Puppetry is a chartered guild of the Puppeteers of America. We are a collection of puppeteers and puppet enthusiasts ranging from professional performers and artists to educators and hobbyists, located throughout upper New England. We hold meetings several times a year at the Puppet Showplace Theatre, to share knowledge and inspiration, and to offer support to other puppeteers.

We offer workshops, consultations and support for those interested in puppetry. We have members who specialize in custom-made puppets or offer performances at venues such as schools, community centers, and birthday parties. Click here to learn more about BAGOP or download a Membership Form.
