About the Show & Our Speaker

THE THREE LITTLE PIGS strike out on their own looking to have fun and adventures. But first, they must build houses for themselves. Straw, sticks, bricks, and a huffing and puffing Big Bad Wolf add up to hilarity and mayhem in this adaptation of the classic story, “The Three Little Pigs.”  

After the show Art will give a backstage tour of his virtual set-up and discusses the three ways he’s adapted his shows to work as live-stream performances in the COVID Era. He will also discuss how he will use the live-stream technology post-pandemic. 

ART GRUENEBERGER became fascinated by puppetry in the early 90’s while pursuing a degree in teaching. Under the mentorship of master puppeteer Richard Bay, an early opportunity to study with Jim Henson’s Muppet Performers, and hundreds of performances for Bay’s company helped hone his skills as a performer.

Art founded Puppet Art Theater Co. in 1995 and today, Puppet Art Theater Co. has eighteen productions that tour across California and beyond completing more than 600 live performances for family audiences every year. Grueneberger took these skills and started Puppet Arts Creative which develops and tours fantastic educational programs for government agencies, corporations and other organizations that deliver important educational messages to targeted audiences. 

In April, Puppet Art Theater Co. ‘s pivoted from live performances to live-streaming shows. Since the pivot they’ve completed over 200 paid live-stream performances.
