About Our Puppet Shows

Our “green light” messages promote personal and planetary health. We combine important social topics like empathy, communication, kindness, and equity into an array of environmental issues covering everything from clean air, soil, and water to the importance of pollinators. Our shows are fun, engaging, upbeat, action-oriented, and timely. Participants are given access to the show scripts, and they are encouraged to perform the shows for their friends and family to increase the reach of these important messages.

Our first puppet show was based on the Mason Meets a Mason Bee book about helping native bees by planting (native) wildflowers. From there, we’ve developed shows about combatting aquatic invasive species and sustainability. Our goal is to have a new show every week. So, please! Sign up for a bunch of shows and have us coming back to your organization on a regular basis. 

In addition to our shows, we love when time and space allow us to do a little hands-on creation or exploration. We’ve made sock puppets with kids, looked at native bee specimens, played a pollination game, and found “invasive species” (that look a lot like toy slime for this activity) hiding on a boat.

We would absolutely love to perform for you, and no fee is required. However, if your organization is in a position to help cover any amount of our costs ($500/show), we’d appreciate it.

When you’re trying to persuade people to do something important, you can present statistics, policy statements, graphs, and spreadsheets. But without a story that paints a picture of what’s at stake, touches the heartstrings, and sparks the imagination to envision possibilities, it’s hard to move people to take action. One formula for accelerating transformational change is to amplify the right message from the right messenger at the right moment in time.”
