Studio Babette celebrates our 10th Anniversary!
On April 27 2008,
Studio Babette Puppet Theatre
made their debut at the
Pearl Co. in Hamilton
with Carlos & his 5 Reasons.
We are celebrating by featuring another one of our original productions this summer,
Pulcinella, il Cameriere.
Studio Babette Puppet Theatre

Inspired by the Commedia dell'arte style of puppetry,
and fashioned in the traditional Italian Guarettelle style,
Pulcinella is a bold, fast paced, hilarious comedy that features
Pulcinella, Pantalone, Angelina and DemonDog,
plus a host of other surprise characters!

This show will be tailored to individual audiences,
which means that young ones will have a kid friendly version,
while more mature crowds will be treated to an (ahem) adult version!

Check out our calendar for a complete list of our upcoming shows!

Studio Babette has amassed a rather large collection of puppets over the years. Many of them were made by us for shows; others are puppets, some historic, which were picked up in our travels. This collection is available for display. Here is a sample of them, with more added all the time.
