Liz Joyce, an accomplished puppeteer, writes, directs and performs a growing repertoire of works for audiences of children aged 10 months to 10 years. Subjects include her take on traditional fairy tales, folktales, educational shows and original creations. In each of these productions she amuses and entertains both the children and the adults.

She honed her carving skills working with traditional puppet carvers in Prague, Czech Republic, and often collaborates with other puppeteers in the international puppet community. Liz’s puppet operetta, Sing a Song of Sixpence was awarded an UNIMA Citation, the highest award in American puppetry.
