Puppet Theater - Who's Who
fairyland.org, 11 Aug 2010
Lewis Mahlmann has been a guiding light of Fairyland's puppet theater since its early years. Already a prominent Bay Area puppeteer when the Storybook Puppet Theater opened in 1956, he served as puppetry consultant, a builder of puppet shows, and a designer of many Fairyland features, including the Japanese Tea Garden (a popular area for catered birthday parties) and the Emerald City Stage. In 1967 he left a successful real-estate career to become the puppet theater's fourth director. His puppet-show creations-"Alice in Wonderland," "Aladdin," "Cinderella," "Thumbelina," "Beauty and the Beast," and many others-are among Fairyland's most beloved puppet productions. Lewis grew up in Chicago and began collecting puppets as a child; he says he loves all types of puppets, but has a special fondness for hand puppets. Although he retired from his director's post in 1990, Lewis still stages puppet-theater productions at Fairyland, usually working with a young apprentice.
