Fun and Interactive Puppet Shows Encourage Curiosity, Creativity, and Enthusiasm for the World Around Us with Stories and Characters Real and Imaginary!

From April – June 2017, Puppet Showplace Theater explores the natural world, investigates mysteries, and encourages hands-on creativity in its “Get Curious!” series. These twelve interactive shows feature a variety of puppetry and theatrical styles, from hand and table-top puppets to live actors and music, in order to tell interactive and entertaining stories that children and families will love! In June, we also welcome back Puppet Playtime, our popular interactive performance experience for toddlers.
