Paul Mesner Puppets is a Kansas City original.
Mesner Puppets, now in its 29th season, is a globally known professional puppet theatre company based in Kansas City, Missouri. The company performs a local season of plays as well as tours nationally and international to more than 30,000 audiences annually.
The company operates in a rehabilitated 6,000 square feet former hardware store in KC’s Hyde Park neighborhood south of the KC Plaza. Here, the company performs in a studio space seating 200, and builds all of the puppets and scenery for every show. A display room of Mr. Mesner’s extensive puppet collection doubles as a childrens workshop for making paper puppets after every show.
