Imagine questioning a conceited Emperor about his "new clothes" at a Royal Press Conference! Magpie Puppets performances actively engage children. In Moccasin Stew, children change the scenery with a magic chant. In Eeyore's Birthday, they help Pooh Bear remember birthday protocol. Each performance opens with a guitar sing-along, or a lively lecture/demonstration about how puppets are made and manipulated. Performances run approximately 50 minutes and are appropriate for both large assemblies and small groups.

Magpie Puppets performs puppet shows in the Boston area and throughout New England. Birthday party puppet shows take place in your home and make your child's party memorable (and manageable!)

Magpie Puppets is included in the Massachusetts Cultural Council Performing and Touring Roster and is a participant in the New England States Touring Program. Study guides citing relevant Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks are provided for school performances. Director Maggie Whalen is an active member of the Boston Area Guild of Puppetry.

Beginning September 5, 2011, you can see Maggie Whalen teaching puppet-making during the live-action video segment of the Curious George episode entitled "Sock Monkey Opera" on PBS stations across the country. This episode will be shown with another episode called "Auctioneer George."

Maggie was fantastic with our kids. I was a little nervous that they wouldn't be able to sit for the entire performance, but she kept them so engaged that the time wasn't an issue. The kids laughed through the entire performance and loved meeting the puppets after!

Maypie Puppets came for our 5 year old birthday at our home to present Eeyore's birthday. The kids and the parents alike loved and enjoyed the show very much. The show was well planned, captivating and full of humor. Thank you Maggie for making the party so memorable. San San

The audience was fully engaged. It was interactive and fun! There was audience participation. Maggie did a terrific job. The show was interesting too, as she provided some information at the beginning of the show that really helped student understanding.
