Piccadilly Productions is a child-centered company that uses original art forms to develop the imagination, build self esteem, and teach personal safety.
We believe the act of families, children, and educators sharing and participating in stories — stories that are true and innocent at heart — is a respectful and time-honored tradition. Sharing stories rejuvenates and maintains hope to communities and future generations.
The company comprises of different puppeteers, actors, and actresses who work full time in the industry. We tour a variety of shows; you can bring them to your school, library, or community event. See Touring for more information.
