CityParks PuppetMobile

CityParks PuppetMobile

City Parks Foundation offers a traveling puppet show, City Parks Puppet Mobile, the oldest continually operating company of its kind in the country, which presents free performances and puppet-making workshops in neighborhood parks, recreation centers and schools throughout New York City.

CityParks PuppetMobile, one of the only traveling puppet theaters in the country, brings Swedish Cottage productions to all corners of the city, free of charge. Performances are held in parks, playgrounds and recreation centers. Puppet making workshops are also offered where children learn about the art of puppetry and create their own puppets.
In the current production of “Little Red’s Hood”, Little Red is a smart, young city slicker who is too focused on her smartphone to notice her surroundings. Wulfric is a misunderstood wolf with a sweet tooth. When Little Red travels from New York City to the country to deliver some cupcakes to her Grandma, she encounters a colorful cast of characters as Wulfric the Wolf tries to head her off at the pass.
