“Mr. Damon does an exemplary job of performing. His use of audience participation is very engaging for our mixed age audience, and he is well loved by both parents and children.” – Gretchen Schweers, Toco Hill Library
Theater Arts and Puppets offers innovative and original puppet and music performances for libraries, school assemblies and special events.
As teaching artists we mentor kids to design and perform theatrical works by accessing their natural state of creativity, kindness, self-actualization and cooperation. Kids in TAP programs achieve educational objectives through discovery learning, learn art and theater skills, and grow while exploring positive, enriching characters and stories relevant to their peers, family and community.
We can provide you with a list of existing programs, or work with you to create the perfect program for your needs.
