Artist Biography

Charlotte Anne Dore Rosalita's Puppets

Rosalita's Puppets is a touring puppet company based in Somerville MA. It was established in 1993 by actor/puppeteer Charlotte Anne Dore, who received a BA in Creative Arts from Nottingham Trent University in the UK. Charlotte builds the puppets, sets, and costumes, and also performs in the shows and creates original, inventive, and interactive presentations, delighting audiences of all ages. She presents one of a kind puppet shows using live sound rather than a recorded soundtrack, which allows for improvisation and adaptation, making no two shows the same. Each show is influenced by the audience's responses to questions, and encourages creative thinking and empowerment.
