Welcome to
Shadow Puppet Theatre

We design, build and create shows with all kinds of puppets!

Shadow Puppet Theatre is a professional shadow puppet troupe located in the Region of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

We produce puppet shows, design and build our own puppets and lead workshops in making and manipulating puppets for people of all ages — we are interested in the history of puppetry and in learning old techniques as well as developing new ones.

The company has been a labour of love from the beginning. Our company began in 2006 and we are still growing. Learn more about us, how we got started and where we plan to go next. Then, take a look around our site and see what we’re up to.
