We rent puppets for theater production as well as training to operate the puppets to make them really come to life. Base prices listed, actual total cost dependent on the run of show, shipping, etc.

Stephani founded Half Pint Puppets and Puppets and Pints after moving to Seattle in 2015.
Previously, Stephani lived in Oregon and was a costume designer, puppet builder, and instructor with Children's Educational Theater in Salem, Oregon. She's taught hundreds of children and adults to build puppets in after school enrichment programs, camps, brew pubs, private homes and her own studio (The Space Between, Design Studio).
She has also studied improvisational theater at Capitol City Theater, Second City (Chicago), and Curious Comedy (Portland) and uses improv games to create stories and shows with students.
Stephani is trained to say "yes". If you have a need; a custom puppet, students want to build/create their own puppets for a theater production, want a giant flying dragon for your school play? Just ask. We'll find a way to do it!
You may think you'll just be learning to build a puppet, but magic and wonderful things happen here. Mostly...just funny fun!
Children from 4 to adult. We can work with all age groups and special needs, too. We like to say "yes" and will build a program and puppet for any situation.
Call us with your own ideas of how we can make puppets with you, your family, classroom, office....Build a puppet and change the world!
