Join Piccadilly Puppets for their performance of Butterfly Ballad, written by Carol Daniel and Pamela Shook. Since 1970, the Piccadilly Puppets Company has entertained and educated children all over Georgia and sometimes beyond! Each year they perform for thousands of children in all sorts of venues, from schools and libraries to birthday parties and festivals. Piccadilly Puppets has been awarded the Citation of Excellence from UNIMA, an international puppetry organization.
