Jessica Kay – Puppet Maker



The beautiful puppets for our first three productions, Ruby Flew Too!, The Lost Present and Isabel’s Well are made by the very talented Jessica Kay.

Jess has been working in professional theatre since her late teenage years. She has created over 70 puppets of all types: including, rod puppets, string puppets, glove puppets, table-top puppets and body puppets!

Although she has predominantly worked in puppetry, her creative roles have been various. With jobs including: Puppeteer, prop maker, set builder, scenic painter, assistant designer, designer, stage manager and animator.

In 2012 Jess put her carving knife down and took to the stage to perform in The Lost Present…A Christmas Adventure. It was Jess’ first venture as a performer and puppeteer, but you would never be able to tell!
