CactusHead Puppets, affiliated touring artists of Puppet Showplace Theater, are known for their playful performance style and exuberant creativity. The West Springfield-based company was founded in 2010 by husband-and-wife team John and Megan Regan. They tour throughout Western New England with shows based on favorite familiar folktales, including The Pied Piper of Hamelin and The Bremen Town Musicians, as well as an original show, Magnificent Monster Circus.
John and Megan are both graduates of the University of Connecticut’s Puppet Arts program. Megan is originally from the Kansas City area, where she worked with Paul Mesner Puppets. John is from Western Massachusetts, and is honored to be performing in the same libraries where he saw puppet shows growing up. Megan collects pop-up books, and John has a love for giant monster movies. Both John and Megan were once interns at Puppet Showplace Theater, and they always enjoy returning to Boston to share their work with the community!
