The Hudson Vagabond Puppets


The Hudson Vagabond Puppets (HVP), founded by Lois Bohovesky in 1980, is well-known across the country for its narrated ballets and larger-than-life puppetry performances that both enrich school curriculum and engage family audiences. Influenced by traditional Japanese Bunraku puppetry, professional dancers and actors blend into shadows of the stage while performing a variety of puppetry styles which range from masks to rod, hand and body puppets.

The company’s nationally renowned productions have been staged at prestigious venues including Avery Fischer Hall in Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, and Orange County Performing Arts Center. Narrated ballets, a specialty of the company, have accompanied performances with the St. Louis Symphony, Little Orchestra Society at Avery Fischer Hall and the United States Military Concert Band at West Point’s Eisenhower Hall.

In 2018, creator Lois Bohovesky, passed the torch to producer, Kevin Harrington, and the Plaza Organization to continue the legacy of the award-winning Hudson Vagabond Puppets!
