What to Expect
The Ridiculous Puppet Company does not offer your standard "sit and passively watch a show" performance. It is a fully interactive experience, where people approach a small puppet booth and talk or otherwise engage with the puppet character. Conversations, riddles, trivia, there are lots of options.
The Ridiculous Puppet Company has a variety of packages available, and is always open to discussing custom performances. When you contact us for your event, make sure to include what kind of event you're hosting, and what you're looking for in our show. We want to make sure that our performance is right for you!
On the day of your event, our trained puppeteers will arrive 30-45 minutes before show time. They'll work with you to find the best location to perform for your event. After bringing in and setting up our puppet booth and sound equipment, the puppeteer will be ready to perform for your guests. After the show, our puppeteer will spend about 15-20 minutes tearing down and loading the equipment. Our goal is to enhance your event with our scheduled show, and provide as little distraction as possible the rest of the time.
No matter what your event is, The Ridiculous Puppet Company wants you to have a positive and engaging experience.
