Peter Brizzi has been performing with puppets since 1979. He is a member of The Puppeteers of America. Through the years he has been on the artist roster of The Art Council of Monterey County, The San Benito County Arts Commission, Young Audiences of San Jose and Silicon Valley, and Young Audiences of San Diego.
He has taken his puppets to thousands of children and families throughout California. He has performed at countless schools, libraries, private and corporate parties, recreation centers, churches, festivals and theater venues. His puppetry has been enjoyed around the country, on television, and in Budapest, Hungary. The following is from one of his brochures:
“It is a great privilege for me to be able to acquaint young people with the classics and the arts through the medium of puppetry. Puppetry is a great way to introduce children to the arts, as it encompasses them all: music, sculpture, painting, dance, theater, poetry, and literature. For many children a live puppet show is their first introduction to theater. I want to inspire children to read and to discover the wealth of literature that has stood the test of time. I also hope to promote values that build character, to provide entertainment that has depth and meaning, that plants seeds of thought for the child’s future development. I hope to instill an appreciation of beauty through my performances.”
