Get to know the Puppetry Guild of Pittsburgh

Let your imagination take over. Learn all about the Puppetry Guild of Pittsburgh and join them at the Summer Slam on Sat, Aug 17.

Pittsburgh has had a long history of famous puppets. Margot Lovelace entertained Pittsburghers from 1964 to 1978 at the Lovelace Marionette Theater on Ellsworth Avenue. And the residents of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood of Make-Believe continue to entertain children today. Pittsburgh has had a longstanding community of puppeteers who make up the Puppetry Guild of Pittsburgh.

This mural on Ellsworth Avenue is located near the location of the Lovelace Marionette Theater. You can read more about the mural and the theater on the Pgh Murals blog.
