Mister Kipley’s Bio Mister Kipley has been performing for children and families for over 20 years. Over the last two decades, he has performed numerous family and educational programs with Boston’s famed City Stage Company, and was the very first actor to portray Buster Bunny in the very first live show based on Marc Brown’s Arthur books at the Boston Children’s Museum.
He has performed at grade schools and libraries throughout the Northeast and New York/New Jersey region as Johnny Junkfood in the nutrition-education juggling show, Food Play, and was a co-founder of the original Hoboken puppet show, The Story Hour.
Inspired largely by Jim Henson’s work, Mister Kipley has created his own style of performance that combines live music, interactive puppetry, magic tricks, balloon twisting, and of course lots of irreverent humor. His number one goal is to create magical moments that children and grown ups can enjoy together, just as he used to watch The Muppet Show with his whole family, laughing and singing along.
