For twelve years Paperhand Puppet Intervention has been creating original large-scale puppet pageant extravaganzas complete with giant puppets, masks, shadow puppets, stilt dancing, painted flats, live music and so much more. These shows have told stories of the human heart, illuminated myths from around the world, and inspired young and old alike through their unique brand of creative expression. Each summer Paperhand helps create a community that shares not only their picnic blankets, but also their ideas and experiences. In past summers nearly 14,000 people attended Paperhand’s production, making the show one of the best attended productions in the triangle.

As we prepare for our thirteenth summer show we are asking for your help to raise funds for some of the expenses for this year’s production. Your donation will help us cover the cost of renting the performance space, paying a stipend to our hard working interns, and the basic materials needed to build the puppets for the show. In exchange for your donation we have a bundle of wonderful rewards including limited edition postcards and posters, free tickets to the summer show, handmade totes, DVDs, T-shirts, an invitation to a special backstage dinner party, one of a kind shadow puppets, beautifully hand painted cardboard flats, special appearances from Paperhand Characters and even your very own Paperhand mask!

We appreciate your donations small or large and thank you greatly for your support! Please also support our campaign by passing this site along to your friends!
