Mission Statement

StoneLion Puppet Theatre is a professional not-for-profit theater company dedicated to expanding the horizons of the young and young-at-heart through the art of puppetry in an interdisciplinary community of ethnic and cultural diversity.


StoneLion Puppet Theatre is perhaps best known for Illuminated Waters, the areas largest free community art festival where the community actually helps build the giant puppets at our studios and puts the event on. Illuminated Waters 2018 reached over 7000 people.

StoneLion does not have a regular theater season nor does StoneLion sell tickets. We take the art to the audience whether it is one of the 263 performances and workshops given last year locally into schools and libraries or part of our international outreach sponsored by the US State Department. Our latest project sponsored by National Geographic will start this summer in Eilat Israel where we are filming puppets underwater in the Red Sea in partnership with For the Seas Productions. This project will create films, PSA's and live events promoting banning single use plastic on the beaches of Eilat and elsewhere.

StoneLion has twenty-three different productions on our touring roster currently and produces three large scale "giant puppet events" annually.
