About Us

Puppetry is about making the impossible possible.

It is a magic world that stimulates the imagination and encourages creativity.

It is an ancient art form that is continually reinventing itself, never losing its power to connect us to what is essential in the joy and drama of life.

Steve Coupe and Sue Wallace are co-artistic directors of Sydney Puppet Theatre founded in 1984.

We create and perform what we call "Theatre of Delight" for the family audience.

The company also creates works for adults either in theatres or for cabaret or parlour.

We design workshops for all ages and abilities.

We have toured extensively in Australia and have performed by invitation at international puppet festivals and events in Hungary, Germany, Austria, Mexico, Japan, Singapore, Korea, Hong Kong, New York, India, Turkey, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Poland, Ireland, Serbia and Romania.

In 2015, with the support of the Wingecarribee Shire Council and the Elizabethan Theatre Trust, we worked with colleagues to open a new venue, ImaginArta – the Australian Puppet Centre Incorporated where we continue to present puppetry performances every Sunday and promote the art of puppetry through performance, workshops, film nights and artist talks.
