The Dublin Puppet Festival is an international puppet festival that is celebrated annually. It used to be held at the Lambert Puppet Theater and Museum, which is located in Monkstown, County Dublin, Ireland. Eugene Lambert, the founder of this program in 1972, was managing the business along with his family. Unfortunately, he died last year and has passed on the puppet operations to his heirs. In 2010, the International Puppet Festival was housed in Temple Bar, right in the middle of Dublin City.
It is quite obvious that Dubliners enjoy being entertained. They want to experience all the fun and excitement at the festivals and events happening each year. With the Dublin Puppet Festival 2011 as one of them, it is set to happen this October 21-30, 2011 at the seaside suburb of Dun Laoghaire.
The Dublin Puppet Festival brings the world’s best puppet productions. Its puppet theater keeps tradition alive and it has been shown across the world for many years. It highlights artistry, cabaret, circus, and slapstick comedy for audiences to enjoy.
The puppet theater works through finding sponsors who wish to support the show and its performers. For the show to go on, it depends on funding, so its owners are looking for big and small donors who are willing to fund the show annually. In 2010, the festival got its support from the arts council with a little help from corporate Ireland. Any interested sponsor of the Dublin Puppet Festival will need to get in touch with its staff to donate money.
The show is patronized by many interested people of all ages. These include educators, parents, grandparents, kids, and tourists who are all curious about the presentation. All these people are thrilled with the excitement of being entertained by puppetry.
