General

  • Mission:
  • Using the power of puppetry our mission is to educate children about different social concerns and differences, giving them the skills to stay safe and healthy.

  • History:
  • Since 1979, Chattanooga's Kids on the Block has provided educational puppetry programs to schools and communities in 12 counties in Southeast Tennessee and Northwest Georgia. For the past 10 years, we have averaged more than 400 programs for over 32,000 children and adults annually. Our highly trained puppeteers use the art of Bunraku puppetry- dressed in all black they create the illusion of becoming the shadow behind the puppet. The puppets have distinctive personalities and portray, through carefully scripted material , a world of real life situations. As our puppets come to life, children can identify with them and open up to them as if they were trusted friends.
