The Suitcase Theatre Arcade will be sharing puppet shows from a stellar jam of artists at Market Collective this December 8 – 10 and December 15 – 17, 2023.

We are looking for a few more puppeteers to bring their own short form puppet creations to present to Market Collective wanderers and shoppers during the holiday season. If you don’t have a show, there are also some shows that are already prepared for other puppeteers to use if that is preferred.

You must be able to commit to the entire weekend that you present. There will be time for setup prior to the event. Each puppet show will receive at least $350 + gratuities for presenting for a weekend with lots of room for breaks and self-care.

You can apply by filling out the form at or by sending an email to
