Marilyn and Martin
Marilyn and Martin

After years of performing individually, Marilyn and Martin Kessler met in 1995 and began collaborating a show that combines the  Magic of Puppets and the Excitement of Live Music. All the puppets are hand crafted by Marilyn and the stage, props and scenery are built by Martin. The storylines, scripts and musical venues are their original creation. This creative process takes countless hours of work in their studio and woodshop.

Together, their intent in the production of PoppyTown Puppet Shows is to bring humor, drama, enchantment and inspiration to the audience. As a family entertainment production, they both hold the belief that the many virtues of good moral ethics are the backbone of the family structure. This element is displayed throughout their shows in a unique and entertaining way.
