Hello! My name is Connor Asher, founder & artistic director of "Creventive Puppet Company".
We're a Chicago-based theatre company on a mission to create educational/entertaining content for kids using puppetry. In both live theater and web production.

Your patronage will help fund new puppet shows, video content for kids/adults.

  • Live Puppet theater
    • Our main goal is to create new live puppet theater - and tour these shows across the USA. (Which we have already began to do with two entirely self-produced puppet shows: "Three Little Pigs" and "Billy Goats Gruff", which have toured and reached thousands of families in pre-schools, elementary schools, libraries, and more to help kids learn about "patience/hard work and how not to be greedy".
    • Our first few shows are based on fairytales that people are familiar with along with putting our own spin to each.
    • There's a ton of research and testing going into the writing, education, and themes behind each show.
    • Our new show we would like to develop is "The Ugly Duckling" to help prevent bullying in the school systems. This show would feature original music and songs.
  • Web-series
    • Our first big web-series we want to create is Chef's Bubblegum "Alphabet Soup" to help introduce new letters and words to kids.
  • It's the 21st century and everyone is on their smartphones and devices watching youtube videos - there needs to be good, high quality content for kids to watch online.
  • Puppetry has been an incredible way to reach children. Puppetry connects to people in stronger ways than other forms of media. It's real. It's tactile. It sometimes requires many hands to make it work.
  • In addition to all of this - we want to create simple DIY puppet arts/crafts & coloring sheets for kids.

You'll also get invited to a Patreon-only live stream session, planned in advance and hosted at least once a month, for the ability to hang out with me a little more exclusively for a few hours. The stream is dedicated to focusing attention on you guys so it will be much more personal than my public livestreams tend to be where I often get too caught up in working. I'll share with you exclusive news and reveal exciting projects and announcements here before anywhere else as well as talk about whatever you feel like!

  • You'll be entered into a bi-monthly art raffle where the winner gets to select the subject matter. I will host it as a public Livestream and schedule it so the winner can watch it come to life. The more contributors to be entered into the raffle, the higher quality the art will become (starts as a sketch and will increase exponentially). If you contribute one month and can't contribute the next month, you'll still be entered!

If we miss a month, we'll make up for any lost time you are obligated to have with me. You'll also be featured in a future YouTube video as a sponsor and mentioned on my websites as such.
Goals
$0 of $1,000 per month
Help us cover rent to create new content full-time. Reaching this milestone would cause me to immediately resign and dive into art full time!
