About The Puppet Company

The Puppet Company was created by Randal Metz and has been producing imaginative family entertainment for close to 50 years. It strives to present quality children's productions that appeal to all ages. Each tale or well known "puppet classic" is told with humor and delights the eyes with well crafted puppets and colorful scenic effects. "Combining theater and puppetry is the key to a successful and creative production." And after seeing just one performance you'll wholeheartedly agree!

Randal has been pulling the strings of the Puppet Company since the age of ten. With a B.A. Degree in Theater and Children's Theater from San Francisco State University, he is well prepared for the vigorous job of entertaining families. After 20 years of apprenticing with Master Puppeteer Lewis Mahlmann, of Children's Fairyland, he became partners with his "at one-time" teacher and currently produces seven different puppet shows a year for Fairyland which is located in Lakeside Park in Oakland. Thanks to Mahlmann's influence, Randal is able to tackle any tale that will educate or enthrall youngsters. From "The Three Pigs" to "The Magic Flute", wherever the imagination will travel, the Puppet Company can take you there.
