What Others Say...

"Thank you again for coming on Thursday. The kids and teachers both really loved your performance and I even had two teachers separately mention how great and interactive your show was. I could hear lots of laughs coming from the room while I was in the office and that is always so great! Thank you again!

Emily K. - LePort School, CA

"The kids LOVED IT!!! Tait did a great job of keeping them engaged and entertained!!! He's friendly and professional. The finger puppets in the end was a nice touch! Would definitely hire him again! 

Michelle M. - Seal Beach, CA


"Your performance was absolutely spectacular. It is very difficult to offer something that children who are 2 and children who are 8 are all interested in, but somehow you managed it. They couldn't take their eyes off of your marionettes. You filled our school with laughs, and the students could not stop talking about your show! We will definitely have you back in the future."

Cozette H. - Heritage Montessori, Lake Forest, CA


"Tait Hill and his Puppets were a huge success at Laguna Hills Mall "Summer Fun Wednesdays!" The kids (and adults) loved his show and the giggles and laughter echoed throughout center court during the performance. We are looking forward to having him back again soon. One of our favorites!"

Lynn M. - Laguna Hills Mall, CA

"Thank you so much for such a wonderful marionette performance! Your show was a huge success with our little ones. Your expertise in allowing the children to interact with the puppets during the performance was perfect! Entertaining 100 children between the ages of 2 through 7 years of age is not an easy task. You made it look so easy by engaging the children. I would like to book the Halloween, Christmas and Easter shows as soon as possible. Thanks again. We are looking forward to the Halloween show! All the best of success to you!"

Anne M. - Director, R.S.M. Montessori School, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA


"Thank you so much for coming to our carnival. Everyone loved it and I would not change a thing!
The show was spot on perfect for our kids and the parents enjoyed it as well. Again, thanks."

Julie B. - ABC Adult School, Cerritos, CA


"We hired Pullin' Strings Puppet Productions for my son and daughter's birthday party. It was the best decision ever! Tait Hill is professional, courteous, punctual, and easy to work with. His fees are reasonable. There were over 50 children ages 5-10 and their parents in the audience and Tait kept everyone young and old entertained, laughing, and amazed the entire time. People are still talking about his show days later, and our children are already asking when they can see his show again. Tait demonstrates great artistry and skills. He helped to make our children's party a very special day.
Thanks so much."

Wendy and David O. - Irvine, CA


"Tait is very professional and arrived on time. My daughter LOVED the puppet show (so did the rest of the kids in her preschool class). Tait exceeded my expectations. Highly recommended."

Teresa K. - Los Angeles, CA


"This was an incredible show. I was having a semi-formal event and the children were so enthralled by the creativity and fun for the entire time. Thank you Tait and the Pullin' Strings company! You helped make my party fabulous! My daughter is still talking about it. I highly recommend this for anyone. A true professional."

Helena S. - Newport Beach, CA


"Tait was terrific. He showed up on time. Easy to work with and extremely professional. Set up and breakdown was seamless. 50 plus kids sat enthralled during Pinocchio. All the kids had a terrific time and parents were all enthusiastic!"

Suzanne L. - Birthday Party Mom, Eagle Rock, CA


"We had ages 4-12 in the audience + some college aged volunteers and everyone was kept entertained and laughing throughout the whole show. I would highly recommend Pullin' Strings and really appreciate Tait reaching out to us to provide our kids with a new experience!"

Elizabeth P. - Thomas House Shelter, Orange, CA


"We all enjoyed the puppet show at my son's 4th birthday party. There were children in attendance from age of 10 months to 8 years, and each child laughed and applauded during the show. The adults were also entertained, which is a bonus. Our planned outdoor party was unfortunately rained on, and Tait was able to put on a great show for about 30 people inside our 2-car garage. The "Cavalcade of Puppets" was perfect for my son's outer space-themed party, as the alien, "Bob," fit right in. It was also an advantage to have a local O.C. puppeteer perform as most of the other puppet shows I looked into were from L.A. or the San Fernando Valley and would charge extra for the travel time, something that would have been more risky considering the rainy weather. Thanks for putting on a great show!"

Cheryl C. - Brea, CA


This show was TERRIFIC!
"What a fantastic show for the children at our center and their families! Tait Hill and Pullin' Strings Puppet Productions are extremely professional, prompt, engaging and very accommodating. I would highly recommend this company to anyone and we will definitely work with them again in the future. Thank you Pullin' Strings for giving our families an experience they will remember!"

Amy A. - Newport Beach, CA



Kids Loved It!
"Great Show! Long enough to make it cost effective and short enough so it did not lose the attention of the children. Well worth it and would hire them again

Denise C. - Ladera Ranch, CA

"He was fantastic and entertaining not just for the kids but also the adults. Talented, funny and very easy going. He managed to get my shy child up in front and enjoy her little moment in the limelight. ;) We've seen him perform a few times now and love it every time!"

Bonnie H. - Lake Forest, CA


"Great Show! A very enjoyable show for all the kids and adults. Very professional and worth the money."

Teresa R. - Rancho Santa Margarita, CA


Our school had an assembly and had a puppet show. The show was funny, informative, and educational. The kids loved it. Would love to have them next year."

Debra A. - Longfellow Elementary School


"The whole experience was great. Even when we had to change the party date at the last minute, Tait was helpful in making another date work. I heard nothing but great reviews from our guests. Kids & adults alike thought the Christmas Marionette show was funny & entertaining. I look forward to working with Tait again next year."

Jessica P. - JMKC Express Holiday Party


"We were delighted with Tait Hill's performance. The kids were really excited about the puppets, but even more than that, all of the adults enjoyed the show as well. It was a very professional and polished performance. Tait interacted with all of the audience in a charming manner. He had a nice variety of marionettes, all of which he designed and built himself. He also brought up a volunteer who got an introductory puppet lesson. There were a few theatre professionals at the party (myself included), and we would all recommend hiring him."

Erin A. - Birthday party mom, Northridge, CA


"Tait was excellent with the children, he was extremely entertaining and funny. I would recommend him for any party. He was very professional, on time, and nice. The puppet show was very entertaining, funny, and creative. Thanks so much!"

Dania A. - Long Beach, CA


"Mr. Tait came to our school and presented Pinocchio for our children from ages two to five years old. All our children and teachers loved the show.. He had passion for what he does and was very good to our children. I highly recommend Mr. Tait."

Michelle F. - Happy Day School, Anahiem, CA



"He was great with the kids and they loved his show .
Thank you

South End Health Club.


"Thanks again for doing such a great job at the Members Event this last October!"

Alica D. - Pretend City Museum, Tustin, CA


"Everything went so smoothly! You showed up early to set up, made the kids feel comfortable during the show, and the finger puppets were a hit. Some of the adults wanted to have one. My 4 year old tries to reinact your show in his play room. My two year old fell in love with pinochio. Great memories, thank you."

Tania H. - Torrance, CA



"Thanks so much for putting on an amazing show! This was by far the best birthday party we have had. The kids were totally engaged the entire show. I kept looking around and seeing huge belly laughs and great expressions on the kids faces. Every single kid stayed put throughout the show and did not get distracted by anything else going on. The adults and parents at the party were equally entertained. I can't even begin to tell you how many adults came up to me after the show to say they had never seen a live puppet show. Everyone wanted the information so that they could consider it for their own parties.The puppets were all beautiful, and they all came to life during the show! I would definitely have this show again as well as recommend it to others."

Sue H. - Laguna Hills, CA



"Great show! Tait was professional and reliable--responded promptly to emails, gave clear information, showed up on time to event, was quick and thorough with set-up and clean up, and did a great show. The kids (mostly ages 3 to 5 years) and adults loved it. He has a great sense of humor and fun attitude, and his skills as a puppeteer are excellent."

Caitlin P. - Birthday party mom


"Tait performed A Cavalcade of Puppets at my daughter's birthday party. The marionettes are beautiful and he knows well how to make them alive. Tait was professional, funny and great in keeping the kids engaged all through the show. Children and parents were delighted by the show. Tait was also very kind to include Pinocchio in the cavalcade as a special gift to my younger daughter. You will be amazed to see what the marionettes can do. I highly reccomend this show in every sense. I want to stress on how the marionettes are beautiful and well built. The pictures on the website are beautiful but the real puppets are gorgeous. Thank you Tait for an excellent show."

Giuliana G. - Torrance, CA



"Your show was very entertaining and my group loved it and the seniors really had a good time. I am sharing this information with our friends in business and family because we had such a wonderful time."

Martha W. - Santa Ana, CA

"Five stars all the way. Tait is a role model for other performers. He showed up early, had a swift and seamless set up, brought his own giant poster with showtimes, was pleasant, professional and most of all his marionette shows were highly entertaining and audience grabbing. He had the kids engaged with his interactive dialog and made them feel like part of the show. The enthusiastic cheers, laughter and call out responses from the audiences were on the spot testimonials and rewards for this puppeteer's talent. Highly recommend and one of the best children's shows we've had at the O.C. Market Place."

Jill L. - Costa Mesa, CA


"The children enjoyed the show. Tait did a great job engaging the children with his performance and the children were thrilled to see the puppets come alive in front of them. It was quite amazing to see that Tait can package his entire show in just a few boxes. I appreciated his efficiency and professionalism. Thank you for a great show."

Sandra S. - L.A. Gospel Church



"This was one of the best marionette puppet shows I have ever seen! Not only did the kids enjoy it but the adults thoroughly enjoyed it also. Tait Hill was very professional, engaging and funny. We would recommend his show to anyone!!"

Grace P. - Birthday party mom



"Just want to tell you how AWESOME I think you are!!! Anyone, any age who has the chance to experience your puppet shows, will never forget the talent and creativity that you put into each performance!!"

Janet N. - Children's Festival attendee



"I just want to thank you very much for a wonderful performance and talk you gave for our HHAA luncheon. It was one of the best talks we've had and the puppets were just enchanting. You are a talented artist and a nice gentleman. I wish you well in all of your future productions."

Kathleen M. - Huntington Harbor Art Association



"I've seen them all and you are the best!"

Holly S. - Tutor Time Childcare Center



"Tait's puppetry is a pleasure to behold and I'd ask for him by name if I were to procure the services of a puppeteer!"

Bruce H. - Performance Reviewer for The Orange County Puppetry Guild



"He is a very skilled puppeteer."

Barbara L. - Artistic Director of The Performing Arts Center of Los Angeles



"He has a very pleasant personality and not only performed an excellent show, but also 'connected' with the children, had them involved and interested, and in squeals of laughter!"

Kirti C. - Birthday party mom
