Last day of shows at Peewinkle’s Puppet Studio today, July 2, 2019! Still have tickets available for the 1pm & 3pm shows! Can be purchased online or by calling 317.232.1637.

Pardon the lengthy post...
It is with great sadness that we must announce that the Indiana State Museum has unexpectedly decided to utilize Peewinkle's Puppet Studio for their own programming.
We were caught off guard by this change and because
of the short notice are not prepared to move to a new location to finish out the remaining shows scheduled
in our 2019 season. We know that this will leave many of our young audience members and their families sad as well. We all felt this unique, central location had the perfect content, size and charm for our youngsters. We will keep you posted on the possibility of continuing our long standing tradition of "A Great Start in the Arts...for the Youngest Hearts!"©

In the meantime we added two more performances on July 2nd at 1 & 3pm. To make reservations for these extra shows... please do so by calling the ISM at
317.232.1637 between 10am - 5pm

We will also be at The Penrod Arts Fair
Sat., Sept. 7 with our show and a booth.

We thank you for your incredible support and love for Peewinkle's Puppet Studio over the past 23 years.

Peggy, Debbi and Heidi

Did you know that our presentation of “The Sleeping Beauty” is performed using vintage marionettes built by Erica Melchior? Who is Erica? Erica is the mother of Peggy Melchior, one of the co-founders of Peewinkle’s Puppet Studio at the Indiana State Museum. These small marionettes were originally created in the 1950’s and recently refurbished. The refurbishing included fixing broken strings, repairing or replacing some fabric (if needed) and a bit of paint here and there to touch up chips on hands and faces. Take a step back in time and enjoy this classic fairy tale using the timeless marionettes of Erica Melchior. You will find our schedule at www.peewinklespuppets.org or by calling 317.232.1637! Hope to see you at a puppet show soon!
