Each show is comprised of unique puppet characters and staging and may include various puppetry styles - marionettes, rod puppets, life-size Bunraku-style puppets, hand puppets or shadow puppets. Innovative performance techniques as in Eastern Europe’s "Black Theater" enhance creative rod puppet performances. Unique control mechanisms allow refined manipulation of marionettes.

Educators and students from hundreds of schools each year give enthusiastic reviews as they enjoy and learn from the Gamble programs.

Since all productions require a high degree of performance skills, each JGPP puppeteer maintains proficiency by performing multiple productions in an active schedule of shows. Constant rehearsal and performance insure the high quality required by the company and presenters of the work. Nationally known artists consult on scripts and set design while office staff oversees sales, marketing, publicity and maintenance of puppets.

JGPP has been touring for more than 25 years and is known for reasonable analysis of travel costs. Productions are designed for fast set-up and strike times, allowing for multiple venues in a single day. All are designed to travel by commercial air or van. The company is a touring artist for the California Arts Council, Los Angeles Music Center Education Division, Orange County Performing Arts Center and Young Audiences of the Bay Area.
