Who is George?

He's a tortoise, a giant Galapagos tortoise!

Watch George grow up among lizards, sea turtles, and sea lions, along with hungry goats and dancing birds with blue feet.

This show tells the true story of the last tortoise to be found on Pinta Island in the Galapagos archipelago.

This adorable show was awarded the UNIMA Citation of Excellence in 2005, the highest honor in puppetry arts.

If you love animals, tortoises, the environment, and adorable puppets, Galapagos George is the show for you!

You’ll fall in love with these islands...and this not-so-little tortoise.

• All ages welcome, especially enjoyed by ages 5-10
• Hand, rod, and shadow
• Length: 50 minutes
• From Richmond, VA!

The show was supported in part by a grant from the Puppeteers of America Endowment Fund.
