MEET THE ARTISTS

Peter Schaefer: Peter was born into a family of puppeteers, and has been performing with hand puppets, rod puppets, and marionettes since he was knee-high. After apprenticing with the Bennington Puppets for several years, Peter purchased a marionette show and launched his own company. After touring nationally, Peter decided to join forces with a fellow puppeteer and Tanglewood Marionettes was born.

Anne Schaefer: If you had asked Anne when she was young what she wanted to be when she grew up, “puppeteer” would never have entered her mind. Now, however, she can’t imagine being anything else. After studying art and philosophy in college, Anne took a summer job with the Bennington Puppets of Bennington, VT. The summer job turned into five years of intensive puppetry during which Anne immersed herself in the many facets of puppet theater. In 1993, Anne joined with Peter Schaefer in forming Tanglewood Marionettes.

LOCATION:  Flushing Town Hall Theater
