Hello there! My name is Elizabeth Dapo and I am a puppeteer/actress and director just relocating to the Northern New Jersey area from Washington, DC. I've been active in professional theatre since I was fifteen and I am incredibly excited to begin this next phase in my professional development.
I have my MA in Advanced Theater Practice with an emphasis in puppetery. I talk to inanimate objects a lot of the time. I've been able to work with some amazing companies such as the Jim Henson Company at the Philadelphia Zoo, National Geographic Learning, and the PuppetCo playhouse in Glen Echo.
I have impecible comedic timing and do enjoy myself some good old slapstick routines. In terms of theatrical experience, I've explored musical theater, Shakespeare, and contemporary dramas and comedies, some with, and some without puppets. I have enjoyed every experience and bring my positive attitude, my no-nonsense work ethic, my sense of humor, and my heart to every project I work on.
