Asheville Puppetry Alliance
We are a group of puppeteers and puppetry lovers who aim to bring the ancient art of puppetry in all its forms to Western NC. There are puppeteers in the Asheville area whose art has been recognized and awarded with highest honors by Puppeteers of America, the national organization. We are committed to bringing quality shows to our area from other parts of the US and from abroad as well. We produce 3 shows each year for Young Audiences, at the Diana Wortham Theater. We celebrate National Day of Puppetry each Spring, a full day of puppet shows, workshops and fun. And we'll be sponsoring a second Puppetry Slam in the coming year, where puppeteers of all ages can perform short pieces they've created. We are hoping to offer works geared toward adult audiences as well, and hope also to offer performances in Spanish in the near future. Most of all we strive to share the love of the art, with state of the art performances, for the greater WNC community.
