Terrapin Puppet Theatre

Terrapin Puppet Theatre - General Appeal

With puppetry, we can make the impossible possible using just our hands. Whether it be a bread roll transforming into a boat, a wolf emerging from an old cushion or a tiny genie flying in a miniature model town, it’s our hands that bring these wonderful things to life. Puppetry reminds us that our ability to create something extraordinary is always with us, wherever we are.

Through its world-class productions, Terrapin has been taking this important message to children in every part of Tasmania  for over 35 years. From Smithton up north to St Helens in the east, Bruny Island down south and Zeehan in the west, Terrapin reaches into every part of the state, no matter how remote. The company’s productions are contemporary, fully professional, providing production values rarely seen outside of theatres. We believe every child in Tasmania, no matter where they live, deserves a theatre experience equal to those living in large cities around the country.

To continue this work, we need your help to raise $10,000 to continue to take our productions to over 10,000 children across Tasmania each year.
