Puppetry for the Community

The Arts allow us to

  • Celebrate our similarities and differences in the multicultural society that we live in.
  • Explore our feelings and emotions across different stages of life.
  • Revist and deepen our understanding of our Asian culture and values that define us.

Since the beginning, Paper Monkey Theatre has brought puppetry around our little island of Singapore. We have been to schools, libraries, heartlands, festivals and more!


We have told stories to the young and old. Stories that reflect the issues that we face – sensitive topics such as bullying (Duckie Can’t Swim & The Three Big Bullies) to the importance of wildlife and nature conservation (Hug The Tree & The Wolf of Mr Dong Guo). These original plays have been well received locally, some, even internationally.

We pride ourselves for the entertainment value and realistic acting that  provide audiences a rich theatrical experience with life lessons learnt.

Here are the different community tours that you can select from or you can contact us to discuss further:

The Wolf of Mr Dong Guo

Community Tours, School Shows|

Mr. Dong Guo is the latest adaptation of a Chinese classic by Paper Monkey Theatre, which strives to make children realise the limitations and consequences of being too nice in doing good. Students learn how to navigate around the perimeters of being kind in various situations – some intended actions may do more harm than good.

Tree Neighbours

Community Tours, School Shows|

Tree Neighbours communicates the importance of understanding and setting aside each individual’s differences and to appreciate their strengths, and to live harmoniously as a diverse community.Tree Neighbours is a visual and sensory experience designed with catchy and infectious songs that the young and old will enjoy. Suitable for Total Defence Day & National Day.


Besides stories, we believe in crafting experiences that allow participants to discover their creativity and artistic potential to the fullest, through puppet crafting and drama play. Through these creative expressions, participants can develop self-expression, self-esteem, self-confidence and a greater understanding of the self, the world, and their behavior.
