AvenueQPuppetCamp.com is the brainchild of Kevin Noonchester; a veteran of Avenue Q's Las Vegas cast and current member of the“Puppet Up” puppet improv comedy troupe behind The Jim Henson Company’s critically acclaimed “Stuffed & Unstrung” show.

Avenue Q is a show with heart.  The KEY to sharing it with your audience is having them invest in your characters. While the actors are your cast, the puppets are your characters.  The magic of the show lies in the audience believing the "characters" are alive.

Avenue Q Puppet Camp will instruct your cast with an exclusive, patented "Fundamentals of Puppetry" course specific to the demands of Avenue Q that will teach your actors the following important and necessary puppetry skills to bring your puppet cast to life:

  • Eye Focus
  • Lip Sync
  • Proper stance
  • Puppet "gravity" & walking
  • Puppet acting & reacting
  • Specificity of gestures
  • Synchronization of head movement between actor & puppet
  • Arm Rod manipulation
  • Live hand puppetry techniques
  • Second hand assisting
  • How the puppets interact with props
  • How the puppet characters interact with the human characters

All the things we take for granted as living, breathing actors must now be made manifest in a performance that is channeled through your arm. 

Trained by the show's original Broadway creative team, we offer a variety of services, including: puppeteer training boot camp, show direction & choreography, and also set blueprints to assist you in mounting a quality production of Avenue Q that will carry on the magic and artistry that played such a huge part in the show’s Broadway success. 

To give you a head start before your show puppets arrive, we have our own set of professionally hand made training puppets for both live hand and rod arm puppetry instruction.

Learn your puppetry first hand from the premier authority in the marketplace with the longest list of clients in the country.  Other clients include, Alief Kerr High School (Houston, TX), Los Angeles Valley College, Ti-Ahwaga Community Players (Owego, NY), Calabasas High School (School Edition West Coast Premiere), Lone Star College - Montgomery (Conroe, TX), Tabb High School (Yorktown, VA), High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (Houston, TX), Cohasset Dramatic Club (Cohasset, MA), Music Box Musicals (Houston, TX), Blessed Cardinal Newman High School (Toronto, ON CA), Milton Academy (Boston, MA), Texas A&M University Corpus Christi and a full director/choreographer credit at Santa Monica Theater Guild/Morgan Wixson Theater.  Letters of recommendation available upon request or also at our website.  For more details & to request a quote, go to:
