Adopt A Puppet

A fun and rewarding way to donate!

The Adopt a Puppet program is a fun and rewarding way to assist us to continue to develop these stories that celebrate what it is to be human, and to share them with audience members for years to come.

Adopt a Puppet parents will be acknowledged in the following ways:

  • Adoption pack with certificate and photo of your puppet
  • Invitations to special puppet parent events
  • As a donor on our foyer screens and website
  • A receipt for a tax deduction

Adopt on behalf of others

Adopting a puppet on behalf of a friend or family member makes a unique and long-lasting gift. You can donate and have the certificate and invitations made out in someone else’s name, and they will enjoy the perks of being a puppet parent for twelve months.

All adoptions made between 27 October 2023 and 31 May 2024 will be matched dollar for dollar by Creative Australia! Money raised will help us create a new music theatre puppet performance ‘Hometown’, inspired by a story from Shaun Tan. 

Spare Parts Puppet Theatre is a not-for-profit registered charity with DGR Item 1 status.

THANK YOU TO OUR PUPPET PARENTS

This list acknowledges donations to Spare Parts for twelve months from the date of donation.
