Terrapin Puppet Theatre

Australia's premier contemporary puppet theatre.

About

Established for over 34 years, Terrapin is Australia’s premier contemporary puppet theatre creating world-class performances for young people and their families.

Telling sophisticated stories of humour and pathos, the company embraces new technologies whilst remaining true to the wonder and illusion resident in the age-old craft of puppetry. In its productions, the company aims to inspire families by encouraging them to express the power of their collective imagination through inventive play with the objects and devices that surround them.

Terrapin injects skills and programs into the Tasmanian community, supporting and developing artists and touring nationally and internationally.

In 2012, Terrapin’s production Boats won the Helpmann Award for Best Presentation for Children.
