Le Theatre de Marionette’s repertoire of storybook classics and variety shows has delighted audiences across Texas since 1985. Known for its theaters operating from 1990-2004 in Dallas, Fort Worth, and Arlington, Le Theatre’s Dallas-Fort Worth-based touring company performs in a multitude of small and large venues from schools, libraries, and museums to malls, civic centers, performance halls, and festivals. Featuring one-of-a-kind marionette puppets, designed and built by a team of local artists, Le Theatre’s performances are family-friendly, kid-tested and teacher-approved. Educational, interactive puppetry classes and marionette-making workshops are popular add-ons to round out the Le Theatre experience. LTDM performs in two styles: bridge (long-strung) and cabaret (short-strung). Bridge titles include ‘The Little Mermaid,’ ‘Jack and the Beanstalk,’ ‘Cinderella,’ ‘Snow White,’ and ‘Wizard of Oz.’ With 40-50 minute running times, these presentations are perfect for booking field trips into a 150-500 seat venue and can be combined with hands-on, interactive workshops sensitively designed to instruct in puppet operation and/or construction. Cabaret titles include ‘Silly Strings’ variety show, ‘Out of This World’ sci-fi variety show, ‘Happily Ever After’ the princess-palooza hit, as well as ‘Hansel and Gretel,’ a storybook favorite with schools and child care centers.
