PST's guerilla marketing team, PUPPET INVASION is now recruiting new members!

Help us spread the word about all of the awesomeness that happens at the Puppet Showplace Theatre! Volunteer to hand out marketing materials, drop off calendars and fliers at your local schools or libraries, or help us carry around a giant puppet at an our door event!

Through out the summer, libraries, toy stores and school fairs have been invaded by silly creatures and storybook characters brought to life by Puppet Showplace Theatre staff and summer interns. In July, customers at Henry Bear's Park in Brookline, Cambridge and Arlington learned about different kinds of puppetry. Just this week, the Brookline Public Library was invaded by two PST interns with a giant humming bird!

Want to be part of the Puppet Invasion Team? Contact Brenda Huggins, Community Engagement Coordinator at, or 617-731-6400 x 201 to find out how!
