Virtual Field Trip Performances

Field trips can create lasting memories and foster a love of learning, but transportation costs, volunteer coordination and permission slips can make them a hassle. 

Here’s a great way to take your class on a virtual visit to Puppet Art’s Studio without all the fuss.  Students will enjoy a live-streamed, interactive puppet performance and then participate in a virtual studio tour to see how the show was created and performed.

To join in on the fun simply choose a date and show from the list below and click on the “reserve your spot” button to register your class. (See Frequently Asked Questions.)

If you’d like to book a live, virtual performance just for your class or school on a date and time of your choice, you can book that here: In Person and Virtual Shows.

This production starts with the classic race of the Tortoise and the Hare. Hare, super speedy; Tortoise, slow and steady. Who will win? The conclusion of the race takes place on the “Troll Bridge” waking up the Grumpy Old Troll. Three Billy Goats must find a way to outwit the Troll and get across the bridge so they can enjoy the field of green, green grass. Little Billy, his older sister Brittany, and their father Bruno all try to trip-trap their way across the bridge. Will they make it? A combination of live puppetry with simple animations and digital graphics make for an engaging virtual experience.
