The Garden State Puppetry Guild

Since 2002, the Garden State Puppetry Guild has been promoting the art of puppetry in the greater North Jersey area and throughout New Jersey.  Chartered by the Puppeteers of America, a national not-for-profit organization founded in 1937, the GSPG provides information, encourages performances, and builds a community of people who love puppet theatre.

Among our members you will find professional puppeteers, puppet builders, teachers, librarians, therapists, youth leaders, hobbyists and audience members who are enthusiatic about puppetry.

During a season of events and meetings, the GSPG offers the opportunity to attend workshops and seminars, attend complimentary peformances, and perform works-in-progress or completed works.

The Garden State Puppetry Guild welcomes members of all different levels of interest and abilities and encourages you to attend the next meeting.
