Why book Nappy's Puppets?

For thousands of years, man has manipulated puppets for a variety of reasons: religion, education, and entertainment. One of the oldest and most wonderful forms of puppetry is shadow puppetry.

Jim Napolitano offers a variety of educational and entertainment possibilities; private parties, school assemblies, workshops, fund raisers and professional development days.
People don't recognize Jim Napolitano even though he has been broadcast to millions of television sets nationwide. That's because he's a puppeteer. He's performed for the PBS show Between the Lions, Disney's The Book of Pooh and Nickelodeon in A show of Hands. His puppetry has taken him across the country and around the globe .

Puppet Show in North Haven, CT
I saw Nappy at the National Puppetry Festival - UConn - and have also seen him perform in Trenton, Missouri. The guy is a big teddy bear and the kids just loved him -- and I must say I did as well along with the other adults who were with me. His shadow puppet shows are truly a unique experience that will live on in my memory forever. I am so grateful I got to see one of his shows and whole heartily recommend him for your event -- be it a family event or bigger party. There is only one "Nappy"! Hire him, you won't regret it.

Overview

“Jim is a master artist and educator whose knowledge and dedication to his craft is infectious. His teaching style is friendly, energetic, and accessible... And a lot of fun!”
The New Victory Theater Education Department

“Jim is probably one of the most genuine, relaxed, funny and generous performers around. No one goes away disappointed. Happily, Jim has a good time too.”
Fred Thompson, Connecticut Guild of Puppetry

“It is a wonderful experience to watch a former student develop a professional career with depth and breadth and the respect of his peers. Jim has grown to become a resource to the Puppet Arts Program.”
Bart Roccoberton, Professor of Puppet Arts
University of Connecticut


"Jim takes an ancient and extremely challenging form of puppetry and comes up with shows that are hysterically funny and amazingly skillful. It is rare to see this style of theater done so well."
Crabgrass Puppet Theater


“Jim was swamped with accolades from kids and parents after the show. He was professional, easy to work with and a real joy. I could promote this show as an “all Ages” event and really mean it.”
Suzane Thomas, Milford Public Library
