Q. What are the Puppet Shows about?
A. They are fun shows with a lot of music and motivation for the kids to laugh, learn and participate. They are mostly old fashion puppet shows with metaphores relating to friendship, good values and learning about different countries, music, numbers, colors, animals, science, history, art, fishes, etc.

Q. What is the difference between a toy and a puppet?
A. A puppet is much more than just a toy. Yes, you can turn toys into puppets, but a toy by itself, with no modifications is not the same as a puppet.

Q. Then what is a Puppet?
A. A puppet it an object, manipulated for its special purpose and brought to life. A toy therefore, must be made to ''come alive" with anthropomorphic movements, making the puppet appear to have a thought process (ie. we see it thinking, making choices, experience feelings etc.) Just by moving a toy around, it does not suddenly turn into a puppet. Like wise, just moving a puppet about does not make it one either. The difference is "believability".
During my puppetry classes I tell my students that a puppet just sitting on the table, is only an object. But when I pick it up and begin to move it, the puppet comes to life. I more and more use my my own scripts and rehearseals. It's a professional job like being a lawyer or a doctor. In Japan, people take puppetry very seriously. For instance they also perfom inside water and puppet festivals start at 9 am and often go all the way until midnight. Puppets are important, they are not only for kids.
