In the holiday season of 2012, the Puppet Improv Project merrily brought to the stage an improvised puppet musical set in the magical landscape Santa’s Workshop!
The show featured a new Special Guest Star each night playing the role of “Santa”. Audience suggestions lead the cast of puppet elves and woodland creatures through a magical adventure.
The show played weekends at the Salvage Vanguard Theater, in the Studio Theater during the first three weekends in December.
This was the first improvised show where the PIP developed personalities and backstories tied each of the elf puppets, then improvised using those personas.

The show was a success and reprised the following year in 2013 with a new cast, and a new set of “Santa” Guest Stars.
