Tears of Joy Theatre


After 48 magical years, Tears of Joy Theatre has retired.
A heartfelt thank you to our audience members, our supporters, volunteers, board members, and to the schools who kept our vision alive for so long.
Our legacy continues on through the many talented puppeteers and artists who have wandered through our doors over the years and through the thriving puppetry community that has taken root here in Portland and beyond. Daughter and grandson of the founders are continuing the legacy with Pegasus Puppet Theatre
