Abstract: The present paper is described about the puppetry theatres, which was once a folk art in the field of theatre, but has reached new dimensions today invading the urban theatre as well. Today the puppet performance has grown into a full-fledged theatre art in quite a few countries of the world. It involves a whole company of workers, technicians, musicians, stagehands besides manipulators, artists, sculptors and script writers. It is also used in education and mass communication and can put across social, civic or any message with greater ease and impact than words or any ordinary theatre.
