Puppetry Guild of Greater New York is the central hub for the puppet community in the metropolitan area offering puppetry workshops taught by leading professionals in the field, discount tickets to shows, performance opportunities, and community.
Since the beginning, PGOGNY continues to unite and foster community, friendship, and growth in the art of puppetry.
