Puppet Theater is believed to have come in to being with the advent of the shadow puppet centuries ago in China. But the puppet and puppeteering has been around centuries befor that. People from all walks of life and social classes all over the world have enjoyed the performances of puppets and their puppeteers. Northwest Puppet Theater keeps this ancient form of entertaing theater alive and well by presenting over 250 performances each year.

The Carter Family Marionettes have been featured performers at National and World Puppet Festivals from Scotland to Uzbekistan. The company has been awarded the "UNIMA/USA Citation of Excellence" (the highest award in American puppet theater) for three of their productions and are especially known for their mastery and preservation of the traditional Sicilian marionette theater known as Opera dei Pupi.
