From their website:
“Animal Cracker Conspiracy was created in 2006 as a collaboration between Bridget Rountree and Iain Gunn. The Adult Puppet Cabaret was born by Animal Cracker Conspiracy's love of short form puppet theatre and as a way to foster and support new work and adult audiences for puppet theatre specifically in San Diego, CA.”
