Technical Requirements

Tanglewood Marionettes is a fully self-contained theater. We travel with a complete marionette stage, which has its own integrated lighting and sound systems. The only things required from our sponsors are a ground floor (street level) performance space, and two standard electrical outlets – preferably on separate circuits – within 20 feet of the playing area.

We tour with two stages, one slightly larger than the other. Four of our titles use the larger stage, while the remaining three titles are presented on the smaller stage.

Space Requirements for Each Stage

Larger stage (used with Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella, Perseus and Medusa, and The Dragon King):
A level playing area 16' wide by 14' deep, with an unobstructed ceiling height of at least 12'.

Smaller stage (used with The Fairy Circus, An Arabian Adventure, and Sleeping Beauty):
A level playing area 12' wide by 12' deep, with an unobstructed ceiling height of at least 10'.
