We need room for the footprint of the stage (7 feet wide by 4 feet deep by 8 feet high). Ideally we would like to have an additional 3 feet on each side of the stage, for puppeteer access.
The audience should be seated at a bare minimum 4 feet from the front of the stage, in order to allow for proper sitelines of the stage opening.
We are based in northern Indiana, but we love to travel, and regularly perform throughout Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Illinois. We are happy to perform anywhere in the continental United States, as long as the sponsor is willing to cover travel expenses.
Please email us at Dave@RozPuppets.com for more information.
No deposit is required. Payment is due in full on the day of the performance.

Yes, we are happy to perform for business parties, including business Christmas parties.
We understand that we are living in uncertain times.
We are vaccinated, boostered, and happy to wear masks at your venue. We are happy to schedule performances, with the understanding that they may need to be canceled if your library, school, town, etc. deems it necessary.
There is no financial cost associated with a cancellation. We just ask that you provide us with as much notice as possible.
No, we are not available to perform at birthday parties or in private homes.

Yes, Dave paints the scenery for each puppet show. More of his artistic creations can be seen in his Etsy store: Scratch Pad Creations.
No, all of our puppet shows are performed live, with only recorded music and sound effects. This allows us to 'personalize' each puppet performance, based on the audience reaction and performance location.
No, we do not currently offer any puppets for sale. If that changes, we will list it here first.
