Tinker Taylor Puppets
"Professor Tinker" Taylor
One of the foremost puppeteers of California
Early in life, our professor was irresistibly drawn to this ancient art form and has devoted decades of study and practice to perfecting it for modern audiences. Years of apprenticeship preceded an advanced academic degree and more years of working with the great names of puppetry before striking out on his own.
You can bring a highly entertaining bit of culture to your own function. You and your children will love it.
Punch & Judy
Kids love puppets
The Tinker Taylor version of the classic Punch & Judy is ready to put on in your living room or back yard. Perfect for almost any occasion.
A New Show:
Jack & the Beanstalk
Tinker Taylor Puppets, in collaboration with Gilleland Family Marionettes, offers a marionette version of the classic English fairy tale, Jack & the Beanstalk.
Hansel, Gretel & the Witch
Marionette shows are more complex and take more time to prepare, so we need a bit more time to prepare. Choose from:
- Hansel & Gretel
- Ali Baba & the Forty Thieves
- Scheherazade (a more adult show)
- Something we're dreaming up now.
All the puppets, marionettes, stages and scenery used in the shows are custom made, of his own unique design, by the Professor and his minions in their workshop at an undisclosed secret location.
Young viewers in awe.
