About the Artist: Madcap Puppets

Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, Madcap is nationally recognized for engaging and original children’s theatre productions, as well as in-school educational programs that include performances, workshops, and residencies. Children’s learning experiences are enriched with performances based on world literature and cultures, thanks to partnerships with schools and libraries across the country. Audiences enjoy the collaborations with orchestras, museums, opera, and ballet, which allow the organization to bring a richly textured artistic experience to children and their families. To kick off all the fun, they premiere each season’s original productions through the Hats Off series at the Cincinnati Art Museum and Clifton Cultural Arts Center.

This performance is made possible through support from the Greater Cincinnati Foundation and by American Rescue Plan funds from the City of Cincinnati, administered through ArtsWave.
