Anything is possible....

Allison DeFrees has been creating and performing in puppet shows since 1997, when she first stage managed a magical puppet show in Austin, Texas.

 

The puppets - their movements, their seemingly stoic expressions made manifest by the gentlest of body movements - made her laugh like few things before. Or since.

 

After that show, Allison started performing in as many productions as possible, and eventually joined Das Puppenspiel Puppet Theatre to travel the United States for a full year, to completely immerse herself in the art of the craft.  She came away from that year.... really strong!  Puppets can be very, very heavy!  But also more in love with the art of puppetry than ever. She and her composer friend Andrew Baron then set about to create a puppet operetta version of King Lear, and the fun cascaded therefrom.

 

Allison loves everything about puppetry and the art of storytelling, through puppets, props, mime, theatrical extravaganzas - whatever it takes to tell the tale, and tell it true! - and would love to create a show for you that will provide a memorable and original addition to your special occasion or event.

 

Anything is possible with puppets!
