About Penny:

Every kid has a big dream and Penny’s was to be a puppeteer. Ever since she caught a glimpse of the Muppets at the age of 3, Penny was hooked.

Penny’s Master’s Thesis was “Teaching with Puppets in the Classroom.” In 2002, Penny started Penny’s Puppet Productions. Penny has created over 50 original story-musicals that feature dozens of puppets with their own unique personalities and voices. Penny performs in pre-K and K-3 classrooms, is a favorite at local libraries, and is a regular at community festivals throughout the Pacific Northwest. She also appears as an “Artist in Healthcare” at Emanuel Children’s Hospital.

A Note From Penny:

Dear Friends, Families, Fans, Puppets are my life. I love performing for the pre-K and K-3 set, and my training in early education informs my work. All my shows are original mini-musicals. Each show I create is designed to inspire the audience to participate, to interact with the story. I want to instill a love of music and language. I want to stimulate imaginations. I believe that puppets are one of the best ways to support a child’s emotional development. Puppets naturally help in developing an appreciation and awareness for our similarities and acceptance of our differences.

“The Audience can become so involved with the interaction of the puppet that they do not realize they are learning.”

Penny has performed at several summer camps and Teacher in service day's presenting her work to both Children and Adults. Penny also did a month long tour in Colombia, South America, where she performed and worked with students and puppetry
​from ages 3 years up to 17.​

Proving "Puppets are fun for Everyone!"
