The Wisdom Merchant
For families, children over 5yrs, and adults

Small Show(for up to 200 people)
Needing only a 10ft x 10ft performance area, this  expressive hand puppet show is just right for small places and audiences up to 200. We bring our own lights & sound system and need only an electric outlet within 20 feet.

30 minutes - $200
45 minutes - $300

Large Show (for 600+ people)
A full stage show (requires a performance area 30ft wide x 15ft deep x 12ft high with a black backdrop and good lighting), this is a unique and exciting way to bring traditional stories to large audiences using our life-sized rod puppets, evocative sets, and dramatic movement

30 minutes - $500
45 minutes - $600

Setting up / Packing up
Please have the performance area clear of activity 1 hour before the show begins so we can set up. Packing up takes about 30 minutes.

The Audience
Our show is most enjoyed by folks over 5 years old - including adults.  We particularly enjoy presenting shows for families, where both children and their parents can experience the stories together, then share their joy and the wisdom gained with each other.

* We are not able to supervise unattended children at any show.

Publicity, Travel & Insurance
Performances outside Austin, Texas must  include travel expenses. All shows come with master of promotional material and teacher activity sheets. We ask for a 50% deposit when the show is scheduled. This deposit is applied to the cost of the show and is  completely refundable with one week's notice of cancellation. Random Acts Puppet Theater carries its own liability insurance.
