Puppet Crimes is an original hand puppet show by Jana Zeller and her Spybird Theater, with musical accompaniment by Peter Siegel. The raucously hilarious satire is about what it takes for a common puppet to survive for 400 years in the face of war, tyranny, and economic oppression.

This is an action-packed hour-long show for teens and adults, with snappy rhyme and absurdity, inspired by German, British, and Italian hand puppet traditions. The multi-genre musical accompaniment is arranged, composed, and performed by Peter Siegel. Created with generous support from the Jim Henson Foundation.
