Le Theatre de Marionette
Le Theatre de Marionette's repertoire of storybook and variety shows has delighted audiences across Texas since 1985. Based at Geppetto's Marionette Theater at the Dallas Hilton Anatole Hotel, Le Theatre performs its one-of-a-kind marionette puppets, designed and built by a team of local artists, to audiences of families, field trips and birthday parties. Le Theatre’s puppet performances are family-friendly, kid-tested and teacher-approved and are engaging for all ages. Conveniently performing in both small and large venues, Le Theatre's clientele range from schools, libraries, and museums to malls, performance halls, and country festivals. Educational, interactive puppetry classes and marionette-making workshops are popular add-ons to the Le Theatre puppetry experience and can be customized to meet any occasion. Clients select online from among storybook classics, variety acts, and holiday specials, all appropriate for intimate, mid-size, and large venues. Le Theatre offers show formats in both cabaret and bridge formats. Cabaret, or "open stage" performances are performed up-close by visible, black-clad puppeteers and are perfect for small and intimate venues such as schools and libraries. Bridge productions feature long-strung marionettes operated from an elevated "bridge" complete with drops, sets and props and are best for large venues and performance halls. Photo by John Hopkins.
