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 in person and on line. She has her own Facebook page “Rosalita the Puppet” Where we post lots of informal video skits and content.
Rosalita’s puppets loves to present in person puppet shows for all ages, from toddlers to seniors. Our shows offer great family entertainment for events, festivals, libraries and theatres. We have various sound systems and set ups such as battery powered speakers to allow for indoor and outdoor performances. 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. We also still offer on line options.
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. The shows are great to develop early literacy, 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 .
