"The Wonderful World of Shadow Puppetry"

 Shadow Theater Programming

In-Person and Virtual Assemblies

Shadow puppetry is an age-old art form that features the shadows of two-dimensional puppets cast upon a backlit screen. With its bold shapes and dynamic movement, it’s a magical medium that’s perfectly suited to bring best-loved stories to life for young audiences.

Firelight Shadow Theater is now offering both in-person and virtual (live and pre-recorded) assembly programs. Each assembly features a mixture of interactive segments interspersed with versions of shadow theater performances. Best of all, at the end of each assembly, Daniel provides a step-by-step demonstration for creating shadow puppets from scratch, as well as free online access to downloadable puppet templates and scripts.

There are two assemblies currently available, one for the preschool set, and one for school-age children. Descriptions and outlines below. Booking now—inquire soon for best availability!

Introduce your little ones to the magical world of shadow puppetry with Daniel Barash of Firelight Shadow Theater. In this program (offered virtually in both live and pre-recorded formats), after first introducing youngsters to the wonder of shadow puppetry, Daniel will share five shadow puppetry versions of best-loved nursery rhymes. At the end of the assembly, Daniel will teach audience members how to create shadow puppets and a shadow screen from scratch, and provide free online access to puppet templates and a nursery rhyme script, so families can continue the fun at home. Live programs will also include an optional Q and A with the artist. See you in the land of shadows!
