“Part celestial creature, part sophisticated human” is how Charlotte Lily Gaspard has been described by Faerie Magazine when contemplating the ethereal artist and her work in one of their features. Shadow puppet artist, educator and children’s entertainer, Charlotte’s mission is to activate imaginations and celebrate playfulness wherever she goes.

Charlotte is the founder and artistic director of Midnight Radio Show, a shadow puppet sci-fi fairytale theater company based in Brooklyn, NYC. She designs puppets for theater, film, and music videos, including award-winning indie film “Verses at Work” and theatrical adaptation “A Snowy Day & Other Stories by Ezra Jack Keats.” Mommy Poppins declares, “The incredible shadow puppets will amaze the audience.”

Along with puppets and performance, Charlotte also creates costumes for theatre & film projects. She holds credits for her costume & wardrobe work from the Public Theater, Shakespeare in the Park, Signature Theater, Roundabout Theater, and many others.

Charlotte is the resident production designer at Child’s Play NY, a children’s theater company. She also facilitates puppetry & theatre arts workshops all over NYC and beyond.
