Puppet Shows

whatever puppeteersWhatever Puppeteers are a student-based puppet ministry that has been in existence at Walnut Ridge Baptist Church for over 15 years.  Participating students are 13-20 years old, and perform all over the DFW-Metroplex area.  They use vintage and contemporary songs (“Lean on Me” to “What the Fox Says”) to catch kids attention and open their hearts.   The goal  is to make children smile, listen and watch carefully, then leave with a lighter heart.
