  • Liz Joyce

    Liz Joyce is an accomplished puppeteer who writes, creates and performs a growing repertoire of works for young audiences and their adults. Subjects include her twists on traditional fairy tales, folktales, educational shows and original creations. Liz believes that puppetry is the gateway to theater and that this art form breathes beauty and life into storytelling.

    Trained as a fine artist, Liz also was certified in Art Education K-12. In the early stages of her career, Liz worked with and apprenticed with Terry Snyder, a master puppeteer from Richmond, Virginia. Her artistic approach to puppetry has also been influenced by European puppetry traditions and the eccentric energy of New York's downtown performance artists. She honed her carving skills working with traditional puppet carvers in Prague, Czech Republic, and often collaborates with other puppeteers in the international puppet community. Liz's puppet operetta, Sing a Song of Sixpence was awarded an UNIMA Citation, the highest award in American puppetry. Since 2001,  Liz has hosted many talented puppeteers at Goat on a Boat Puppet Theatre in Sag Harbor, NY where she is founder and artistic director.  She recently served on the Board of Directors for the Jim Henson Foundation and currently serves on the Puppetry Guild of Greater New York's Board of Directors.

    Liz Joyce has performed at Ballard Institute and Museum of Puppetry, Symphony Space, Madison Square Park Kids, Snug Harbor Cultural Center, La Mama etc., PS 122, Theatre for the New City, HERE Performing Arts Center, Los Kabayitos Puppet Theater, Puppet Showplace Theatre, Children's Museum of Manhattan, Brooklyn Children's Museum, Children's Museum of Long Island, Arts at St. Ann's,  Lenny Suib Puppet Playhouse at Asphalt Green, Southampton Cultural Center, Southampton Arts Center, Goat on a Boat @ Bay Street, Guild Hall of East Hampton, New York Department of Parks and Recreation, and many of New York City's Public Schools and Libraries.
