Enjoy some yuletide cheer as the Jingle Bell Monkeys shake their bananas to a duelin’ banjos version of “Jingle Bells” and Blitzen, the daredevil reindeer, soars through space on his holiday unicycle. Peter’s fun-filled confection of zany characters and holiday shenanigans is a treat for students of all ages. Sensitivity and broad audience acceptance are considered by excluding reference to commercial icons (Santa) or religion.

He develops original titles that address themes, with a focus on presenting puppetry as movement, action, and innovation. Peter designs his programs for flexibility and variety, and his shows have the well-earned reputation of mesmerizing audiences.
