Making The World A Better Place One Puppet Show At A Time!
Dear Fans, Friends and families,
I have been fortunate enough to be your local professional puppeteer since 2002. As for everyone the last few years have been hard, especially for the arts. I have really struggled to keep afloat and I am ever so thankful to all of those incredible human beings that love me and the puppets and have helped us get through. I am eternally thankful. It is time for my journey to take another turn.
I have accepted a full-time position as a third grade teacher and I am so excited! This new job is something I have been working towards the last couple years and I am so thrilled for the school year to start and meet my new students.
Although, it is a bit bitter sweet. I love performing for children and their families and will miss the normal library, school and birthday party shows during the school year. My plan is to do special events and library tours in the summer still with the same enthusiasm as ever for my puppet plays.
Thank you for your support over the years and all my best.
And the Puppets.

“Penny is the consummate professional who took the time to understand my event beforehand. She showed up early, completely prepared, started on time, and was a treat for young and old alike. I plan to hire Penny again for next year’s festival.”
Eleanor Green, Event Planner, Sandy Mountain Festival
"Penny is always early to get set up and is ready to go on time. She is very dependable... so much so that when she had an unexpected family emergency she took the time to contact me and told me that she asked a friend to step in so that we would still have someone coming into my classroom to perform.
We could not ask for more!"

" Without being pedantic, Penny incorporates facts and information that children will learn without any effort. Her songs and rhythmic dancing help the kids remember the message of the show's theme. Penny's show is one kids will remember, it's a great use of their time and a worthwhile investment during tight budgets, you get a lot of joy for your buck!"
Janet Rackleff - Yachats Public Library
"It was very successful from a director’s point of view. Penny kept all the children and the adults engaged for the entire show. The children were involved in the story and related to the characters and the plot. They caught all the riddles and jokes and laughed in all the right places. It was wonderful! She uses her Master of Education in her scripts, keeping the language and vocabulary, the speed of delivery, the volume, and the character voices appropriate for the audience. Penny presents the moral of the story in a delightful choice of words that relate to the children. She incorporated the science of growing plants and understanding disappointment with others, plus natural consequences."
