Creating With You

Yippee Skippy Puppet Theater
The Power of Celery

At Yippee Skippy Puppet Theater, we believe in the power of personal, human connection to change the world.

Activating the imagination of every child and adult we encounter is what we aspire to do. When we improvise classic tales like Little Red Riding Hood and Jack and the Beanstalk, we don’t just bring them to life: we give them new life. Every time we improvise, we envision the story anew, creating a world in which girls and boys can be heroes, in which difference is celebrated and universal values of love, sharing and courage are ignited and given meaning, together.

We are working to create a world in which a scary giant can become a friend, in which laughter is contagious, and a happy ending is only a cheese sandwich away.


Yippee Skippy Puppet Theater is pleased to announce our Patreon campaign with Book & Puppet Co.!

We are truly blessed to be doing this work in a moment when it is so meaningful to be providing educational, interactive entertainment for children, and for everyone who loves puppetry, books and improvisational in-person storytelling. 

In order to show our appreciation to our wonderful fans, we have decided to upgrade all Patreon tiers and benefits that were formerly at the next level above. Thank you so much, friends and patrons who have borne with us doing our first week of broadcasting.

To meet the needs of families with children attending virtual school, starting Tuesday, April 14, you’ll see two new afternoon story hours for school age children. See our updated schedule below.

If you missed a show, don’t worry. We’re posting a spiffy video archive to Patreon, so check back there to see the best of the content.

We plan to keep offering free story hours and puppet shows for all the kids stuck at home right now. To support what we’re doing and access exclusive content, join us on Patreon.
