Petrus Productions Puppets

Changing your world through Puppets

We are a puppet company that performs through out South Africa. We use Muppet Type puppets and marionettes and Bunraku Table top puppets to teach life values, entertain and bring laughter as far and as wide as possible. An interactive approach – to be remembered long after the show!

Puppet shows & storytelling for kids party entertainment
I am an energetic storyteller…love kids, love performing, love stories! I have a range of Muppets and String-puppets! If it is possible I can accommodate your theme of your party (at least two weeks in advance notice)

I also have groovy shows like the rainbow pumpkin, the slimy yellow green worm, lots of original babbling baboon (body puppet) stories on making friends, or being special and so much more to entertain you and your kids.

I use different styles of puppetry. The famous story of “The Little Prince” is table top puppets and suitable for all ages. Then there is string puppets and muppets. It is important that you will give us the age group of your party so that we can adjust the method of storytelling and use of puppets accordingly!
