Animal Cracker Conspiracy was created in 2006 as a collaboration between Bridget Rountree and Iain Gunn & the Adult Puppet Cabaret was born out of Animal Cracker Conspiracy's love of short form puppet theatre, habit of always leaving things til the last minute 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. We are committed to breaking your puppet cherry we always have Puppet-E-Oke, that's right you too can perform if you so desire or dare
3. There will be Alcohol, also known to help with expectations 1. & 2. and its tasty, we are working on bringing tea for you "calm cool an collected" folks
 
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 www.animalcrackerconspiracy.com 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

We intend to hold puppet making and manipulation workshops to assist and inspire others to make puppet slam pieces in 2016.
