Puppet theatre Hupilainen was founded in 1984, in Kangasala. Puppet theatre has own theatre building Parvula near Kangasala centrum. The building itself is over 200 years old and is located near Vääksy Manor. In Parvula-house we have about 50 places for our audience.
We prepare performances mainly for children, but our performances are made so that also adults can enjoy of them. Every year Hupilainen produces one or two premiers. The scripts we write ourselves or we use fairytales or ready puppet theatre texts for our performances. You can order our performances to the schools, kindergartens, libraries etc. or you can come to watch performances in our beautiful puppet theatre house Parvula.
Our actors are trained in puppet theatre acting, drama, dramaturgy, dance, music and all actors have worked with children for many years. We arrange education in puppetry, drama and how to use drama-process in teaching.
