Anne Cubberly's Legendary Giant Puppets in your School

Performances

Our giant puppets are a kinetic spectacle. Tell a story. Make a statement. Choose from the collection of fantastical handmade creations in our workshop. Professional puppeteers bring our characters alive or train your students to operate giant puppets for your school event. These eye catching strolling creatures are perfect for school pep rallies, games, festivals, parades, and theatrical productions.

Workshops

Kinetic Dreams custom designs workshops for your organization's needs. Students will learn to make a giant puppet from head to toe (or beak to tailfeather) using repurposed materials and a lot of imagination in a workshop designed for your school. Our highly skilled artists will teach students to conceptualize, design and build a giant puppet for a parade, pageant or play.  Large scale puppetry is a group process which involves teamwork, math, science, sculpting, storytelling and performance.

Commissions

Invite us to fabricate a unique character from your student’s imagination or ours. Kinetic Dreams will deliver one-of-a kind designs for theatrical performances, pep-rallies, parades, and exhibitions. Giant puppets are a compelling form of group expression, inspiring to the entire community and a media magnet!

Parades & Pageants

Kinetic Dreams' custom Parade Workshops are specific to your organization's needs and goals. Participants learn how to design and create giant puppets, costumes, masks and props, culminating in a group performance. Our highly skilled artists inspire and challenge your cohort to create unique projects from start to finish using repurposed materials and the imagination. The group experiences the value of recycling and reusing common disposables in inventive and artistic ways. Participants learn to conceptualize, design and build as well as develop teamwork, math, science, storytelling, leadership and acting skills. The final performance is a spectacle of design and teamwork.
