The Wizard of Oz

About the Company
In 1986...
Kevin Frisch moved to New York City and joined Nicolas Coppola's The Puppetworks, Inc. of Brooklyn, New York. Working with the many talented puppeteers at The Puppetworks, Kevin developed his own art, craft and skills as a puppeteer and artist. The next nine years were spent touring the New York Metropolitan area as well as performing in The Puppetworks permanent theatres in Brooklyn and Macy's Herald Square.

In 1995...
Kevin established The Frisch Marionettes in Cincinnati, Ohio as an exceptional entertainment and educational experience for children and adults alike, proclaiming the many virtues of this unusual Art Form.

Kevin Frisch has built puppets, masks and costumes for The Central Park Zoo, New York Aquarium, The Children’s Theater of Cincinnati and The Puppetworks Inc. of New York. His puppets have been seen in People Magazine, SHOWTIMES' "Twisted Puppet Theater", the PBS Documentary "The American Puppet," and onstage with The Cincinnati Opera as well as in the New York store windows of Saks 5th Avenue, Bloomingdale’s and Hermes New York and in the family film “Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium” featuring Dustin Hoffman and Natalie Portman. Kevin and his puppets have appeared in television commercials for Joseph Toyota of Cincinnati. Most recently, his puppets have appeared in the hit television shows “2 Broke Girls” on CBS and “Warehouse 13” on the Syfy channel.
