Kids on the Block
Our life-sized multicultural puppet troupe

Kids on the Block is a troupe of life-size multicultural puppets. Performances feature issues such as bullying, depression, drug awareness, and mental, physical, and emotional disabilities. Audiences interact directly with the puppets during question-and-answer sessions in each program. This unique form of communication provides young people with a safe environment to learn an attitude of smart decision-making, sensitivity, and understanding that will serve them well for the rest of their lives.
