Using object theatre as a bridge between theatre, visual art and puppetry, Loren Kahn Puppet and Object Theatre brings to life a hilarious and magical world, delighting tiny children and provoking reflection in teenagers and grownups. We’ll help you plan the perfect show or workshop for your organization, whether it’s a theatre, school, library, hospital, community center, day care center, or other venue. Community residencies may include family shows, school shows, and classroom presentations relating to class topics or themes.

To find out more about the kinds of shows we perform, visit our performance catalogue and get details about all of our object and puppet shows. You can see photos and some video there as well. Our education section details some of the programs we have available specifically for use in a broad range of classroom and educational settings. Naturally, our tour pages present current information about where we are performing and when (we are probably coming soon to a country near you!). And check out our news page for our most recent updates.
