Stephani Vrell Sachs

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.  

Need something? Just ask!

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!
