Since 1979, John Potocnik and Carol Mandigo, co-founders of the Catskill Puppet Theater, have been touring internationally, enchanting young and old with their delightful musical productions!
Combining backgrounds in art, music, drama and American folk culture they are one of the nation’s finest touring companies, receiving accolades from such premiere venues as the Calgary, Winnepeg and Ottawa International Children’s Festivals, The New England Puppetry and Family Theater Series, the New York State Museum’s Kid’s Series and hundreds more schools, libraries, fairs and festivals.
The Catskill Puppet Theater takes great pride in carrying on in the living tradition of the old traveling puppet troupes, bringing high quality children’s theater to over 100,000 people each year!
