Training/ Workshops

Classes and workshops are available for all skill levels. Whether you’re gearing up for Avenue Q or simply wanting to expand your horizons as an actor, we can help you hone your skills for more effective performances. Workshops can be conducted in-house at our facility or at your group’s location. Our puppetry workshops have been a hit at UNC Chapel HillBryn Mawr College, Middle Tennessee State University, Theatre Memphis, and more. See what all the “fuzz” is about!


All RoosterSocks coaches have been trained by The Jim Henson Company, Sesame Street Workshop, or both.

Why do we need training? Puppetry seems easy enough...

While puppetry may look easy, anyone who has picked up a puppet will tell you it’s not. Translating your skills as a “fleshy” actor into a puppet requires a transition of skills. Having a proper instructor will put your actors at ease and tackle many common mistakes that beginner puppeteers make. Our workshops can give your production the polish it deserves!

Do you travel?

Absolutely! RoosterSocks has coaches available throughout the country, so there may be a coach in your area, as well.

What can I expect in a workshop?

A RoosterSocks puppetry workshop assumes that performers are starting at the very beginning. It’s a very good place to– you get the idea. This allows everyone to be on the same page and can move forward quickly and effectively together.

Already have experience? Advanced workshops are available as well!
