Rock the Arts Puppets is an award winning puppet company based in Ottawa, Ontario. Their unique show and hands-on workshop combination allows them to engage a wide age range in their audiences.

Both adults and children will laugh and learn by rockin' the art of puppetry and leave these shows with more of an understanding and appreciation of what it means to be a puppeteer and a love for the art of puppetry!
