CELEBRATING 40 YEARS! ALL IN THE VILLAGE.

“Very simple, and perfect as an introduction to theatre.” -New York Magazine
“Charming.” -The New York Times
The Magic Forest

“A knack for finding lesser known stories and distilling them to suit the tastes of the very young fans and keep them fascinated with low-key make-believe..The puppets are charming, the 45 min. program never overexcites the audience, although there’s lots of time for participation.”
-The New York Times

“An unpretentious puppet play with real warmth and gentleness. Its success with young audiences is due to the charm and honesty of the presentation they feel from first to last.” -New York Magazine

“A Child’s first experience with theater is important and forming. Quality counts.” – Penny Jones

PENNY JONES & CO. PUPPETS has been a mainstay of children’s theater in New York since the 1970’s. The company specializes in informal puppet shows for children aged three to eight, and puppet ballets with live music for audiences of adults, children or both. The company performs in collaboration with chamber ensembles and orchestras. The repertory includes adaptations of classical works as well as original stories and scores. In schools, the company has performed hundreds of times, and Penny has a wide variety of programs from puppet pageants with a cast and crew of 30 to 90 school children, to workshops for small classes, and Penny’s “One on One” – interweaving puppetry, storytelling, movement and arts.

The company has appeared on television, in the Henson International Puppet Festival at the Public Theatre, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, at BAM with the Brooklyn Philharmonic, at City Center, Avery Fisher Hall, and in museums including The Museum of the City of New York, The Children’s Museum of New York, the American Museum of Natural History, at Emelin, Wave Hill, the Washington Square Music Festival, at venues from Macy’s to Barnes & Noble, and with orchestras at Bargemusic, Casa de España, Greenwich House Music School, with the New Jersey Symphony, out on the Piers, up on the Highline and many, many, more…
