The Czechoslovak American Marionette Theatre
239 East 5th Street, Suite 1D
Manhattan, NY 10003
FOR FIFTY YEARS, a troupe of antique marionettes were confined to a dusty closet at Jan Hus Church in the heart of New York City's Czechoslovak neighborhood.
In 1990, they came back to life, when director Vít Horejs brought these century-old puppets back to the stage.
Since then, the CAMT has played to great acclaim for audiences of all ages on tours to Europe, Asia, and 32 states.
One-puppeteer to 18 performers, our productions, will fit every space and every budget.
Vit Horejs ( pronounced Horzaysh), the founder of the Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theater, has adapted Faust with old-fashioned artistry-- he and his fellow puppeteers use century-old wooden marionettes -- and contemporary humor.
