Adult Puppet Cabaret

About Us

Animal Cracker Conspiracy was created in 2006 as a collaboration between Bridget Rountree and Iain Gunn. The Adult Puppet Cabaret was born by Animal Cracker Conspiracy's love of short form puppet theatre and as a way to foster and support both new works and adult audiences for puppet theatre specifically in San Diego, CA. Thanks to the generous support from the Puppet Slam Network we are able to hold these events quarterly. There are a few things one can always expect: 

1. You can always make your very own puppet, don't worry there are directions, examples, and others to help you
2. Puppet-E-Oke, that's right you too can perform if you so desire or dare

3. Alcohol, also known to help with expectations 1. & 2.

The Adult Puppet Cabaret is a collaborative experience and we encourage artists to participate and try new works of puppetry. Please join our mailing list at to receive information and calls for submissions. We work to encourage a thriving community of puppet artists and the exchanging of ideas.

We are always looking for volunteers. Send us an e-mail if you would like to be a part of the next Adult Puppet Cabaret.
