Puppet Junction was founded in 2005 by puppeteer, voice actor and costume/prop/puppet builder Serra Hirsch. With over eighteen years in the industry and a background in performing, education and puppetry arts, Serra has cultivated a wide resource of artists, educators and collaborators that she brings on board to help tackle the scope of Puppet Junction's various projects.
Puppet Junction builds sets, props, puppets and large-scale costumes for theater, film and television companies all over the New York City metropolitan area. We also provide services in education, art direction and consulting, as well as custom designed workshops in either puppet building or performing for children and adults. Our talented pool of puppeteers, builders, educators and voice actors can help bring your projects to life!
Puppet Junction's puppets have been featured in television specials, music videos, new media, theater performances and educational tours. They have varied in size from tiny toy theater puppets all the way to 12' pageant puppets. Let us know what your needs are and we can create the perfect puppet for your project.
PJP founder Serra Hirsch is a niche "once-a-year" celebrity in NYC for her annual participation in the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade. She creates "Human Floats" that have won awards and been featured on NY1, Time Out NY & more! If you need a themed costume for your event or performance, take a little inspiration from the creations in the gallery. We would love to help!
