Booking Cycle

Our Production Season Runs July 1-June 30 

Booking generally takes place 10-12 months before the beginning of each season. This allows us time to include your show in our marketing materials for the year.

If you have questions about your submission, contact the center and someone will be in touch to give you an update.

Be a Part of History

Your Submission Could Become a Part of Puppet History

With your permission, we would like to add your video to our library collection after our review process has concluded. DVDs in the library are available for scholars and puppeteers to view by appointment on the premises and do not leave the library. Please specify your preference in your cover letter. If you would prefer that we return your DVD to you, please include a self-addressed mailer, and we will return it as soon after viewing as possible.
