This beautiful marionette, called Rosalita, started it all. In 1993 puppeteer Charlotte Anne Dore began using this marionette at King Richard’s Faire. Currently Rosalita is presenting on line & on zoom. She has her own Facebook page “Rosalita the Puppet” Where we post lots of informal video skits and content.
We are are hoping to create a 20-30 minute puppet film with lots of action with shots taken on our i phone as in this trailer. If you want to support us and have your name in the final credits you can Venmo @Charlotte-Dore and say " for film"
Rosalita’s puppets loves to present puppet shows for all ages, from toddlers to seniors. Our shows offer great family entertainment for events, festivals, libraries and theatres. Rosalita‘s Puppets is currently performing virtually but hopes we can soon return to performing outdoors and by winter indoors. We have various sound systems and set ups such as battery powered speakers to accommodate social distancing. We customize our puppet programs for each audience and situation from livestreams, daycare centers, resident homes, school assemblies and special needs. We have competitive pricing and will try to work with your budget.
Rosalita’s Puppets presents shows written, designed and built by puppeteer Charlotte Anne Dore. She has a BA ( Honors) degree in Creative Arts from Nottingham Trent University in the UK. Each show is original and inventive. She has also custom built puppets for film and Theatre and assisted Oscar winning Tom WoodruffJr as additional puppeteer on the Kevin James movie “Zookeeper”.
Rosalita's Puppets presents one of a kind puppet shows using live sound rather than a recorded soundtrack. This allows for improvisation and adaptation making no two shows the same. Each show is influenced by the audience responses to questions. This encourages creative thinking and empowerment . Great for early literacy. summer reading, communication and understanding. We have listed in detail all the different show options on the other pages go to the navigation bar to search our marionette, hand puppet and storytelling shows .
