About The Dunnworth Puppets

With over a decade of experience, Marc Dunworth has had a unique and varied career in the world of puppetry. Born and raised in Chicago, Marc was lucky enough to see his first live puppet show when he was only six years old. He has never been the same since. Growing up with a father as a magician, performing for audiences was a regular part of Marc’s life at an early age. After creating his own degree in puppetry at Columbia College Chicago, he was able to work for companies and theaters locally in Chicago and abroad.  Be it performing in a touring a bi-lingual Spanish puppet show to elementary schools in the Pacific Northwest as a singing turtle, or building large scale costume characters for Walt Disney theme parks and Cirque du Soleil, Marc has done nearly all that one can do in puppetry today. In 2014, Marc founded The Dunworth Puppets, a company dedicated to promote puppetry as both an art form and a marvelous and unique source of entertainment to audiences of all ages. Visit
