The Puppetry Arts Institute's mission is to preserve and promote puppetry through education and entertainment for all ages
The organization was established in 2001 as part of a dream of local puppeteers, led by Diane Houk, to share this art form with our community. A board of directors meets quarterly to oversee the organization. The Puppetry Arts Institute (PAI) is located in a 3,000 square foot, handicapped accessible building in the Englewood area of Independence, MO. This space includes the Hazelle Rollins Puppet Museum. Hazelle Rollins was a local businesswoman who owned a nationally recognized puppet production company from 1932 to 1975. The space also includes a puppet research library, puppetry performance and workshop area, and offices. The PAI has a website (www.hazelle.org), a quarterly newsletter, a mailing list, email list, and press release list for publicity. The building is open 10:00am to 5:00pm Tuesday through Saturday. The PAI schedules monthly puppet shows and daily interactive workshops to suit the requests of youth, school, senior, and family groups.
