The new Douglas Paasch Puppet Playhouse

The Douglas Paasch Puppet Playhouse

Douglas Paasch was Seattle’s preeminent puppeteer for more than twenty years, opening the imaginations of audiences through his ambition, versatility, and whimsy. This fall, Strawberry Theatre Workshop honors Paasch’s legacy with a puppetry arts showcase at the Lee Center for the Arts at Seattle University. Including performances by regional puppet artists, The Douglas Paasch Puppet Playhouse exhibits brilliance in the craft of puppet design and manipulation, nurtures innovation in the use of puppets as storytellers, and playfully celebrates the gift of imagination, which Paasch so relished and inspired.
