Mel Hatch Douglas
Associate Artistic Director


How does a tour work? Tours begin in May 2016 and the length of each tour varies from 2 to 5 months. Actors travel in teams of two in a combination of run-out and overnight touring in large cargo vans.  Lodging and fuel expenses while touring are paid for by Madcap. Competitive salary offered-- housing in Cincinnati is the responsibility of actor.  All touring actors must have a valid driver’s license and will receive a background check.  

Do I need lots of puppetry experience? Puppetry experience is desirable, but it’s ok if you’ve never worked with puppets before. You will be trained in puppetry during rehearsals.

What if I'm Not Able to Tour? If you are a Cincinnati-based actor, Madcap sometimes hires actor/puppeteers to perform in our shows at the Cincinnati Zoo and the Linton Chamber Music Series, among others.

Qualifications: A Madcap actor/puppeteer must be professional, versatile, adaptable and a team performer with a sense of humor who enjoys the challenges of touring and performing for children.  
Company Information, Now in its 34th year, Madcap Productions Puppet Theatre strives to create the highest quality of giant puppet theatre performances for children, both at our in-house theater at the Cincinnati Art Museum and as a regional touring company. This is created through strong puppet design, imaginative playwriting, and a well-trained and gifted artistic staff.  Madcap Productions tours with two-three troupes throughout a 15-state region, performing for schools, theaters, libraries, symphony orchestras, and community centers.  During the 2014/2015 touring season, Madcap performances reached nearly a quarter million children and families.  Our unique style of puppet theatre combines storytelling and actors with puppet characters (up to 12 feet tall) that range in style from small hand puppets to giant backpack puppets.
