Now Booking!

Live Shows. Socially Distanced. Fully Vaccinated.

Give your kids the magic they’ve been missing!

Our creator and puppeteer is fully vaccinated against COVID-19! That means we are happily accepting bookings for LIVE, socially-distanced puppet shows!

We know the vaccine isn’t a magic wand, so we take safety seriously. Masks are required for both puppeteer and audience and a distance of at least 6ft. must be accommodated between the audience and puppet stage. Craft supplies are packaged individually for each child as an added precaution.

Our puppet shows are perfect for schools, daycares, and birthday parties. We look forward to giving your child or classroom the live, hands-on experience kids are craving.

Happy New Year!



We at ShakesBEARS are already feeling #HashtagBlessed in 2020!  It’s all because we are truly grateful to have you as part of our family.

Throughout the past year we have made so many new friends by performing at community events, play spaces, birthday parties, and participating in residencies at local preschools.

We are so excited to continue to grow and meet new communities.  We look forward to sharing our love for puppetry and literature with you and many others in the coming new year.

Happiest New Year to All!
