State funded professional puppet theater in Croatia.

Zagreb Puppet Theatre is the oldest Croatian professional puppet theatre, established in 1948. During the past fifty years, the theatre has been bringing together first-rate artists and professionals – playwrights and poets, painters, sculptors and musicians, choreographers, costume designers, directors and actors. Their creativity and skill educated generations of viewers, and earned them a significant reputation in Croatia and abroad, confirmed by public acclaim and numerous awards they received at renown festivals around the globe.

Today, the theatre has 50 employees of different professions. Puppets and scenery are constructed in our own workshops. Our shows are mostly suitable for preschool and elementary school children.

Zagreb puppet theatre, as the central Croatian puppet theatre, stands at the crucial turning point: in 1998, the construction of the new theatre building began. Head of the project, acclaimed Zagreb architect Nenad KondÏa in cooperation with the designer of the stage and auditorium, Czech architect, set-designer and director Miroslav Melena, built an edifice equipped in line with top-rate European achievements and standards.

On 20 – 21 November, Zagreb Puppet Theater entered its old/new building situated on the Kralj Tomislav Square and the Barun Trenk Street, after five years in exile. Zagreb theater now has a high-tech facility with 200 - 250 seats, equipped to house the most spectacular puppet shows, along with live acting performances, even chamber operas with musicians placed in the orchestra hole!
