At 2:30 p.m. the doors open and immediately, as the audience enters, the pre-show activities begin. The audience is greeted by the puppeteers who seat the children in front of the puppet stage while adults are seated in chairs around the perimeter of the theatre. The children are introduced to marionettes as the puppeteers stroll through the audience with some of the puppets. After about fifteen minutes of audience participation the stage curtain opens and the show begins. At the conclusion of the performance the curtain re-opens and the puppeteers answer questions about the show and demonstrate the technique of marionette manipulation with some of the characters from the show.
Private Birthday Parties are booked on Sunday at 11:00 a.m. (see link above) or call us for special time requirements.
This production will also play on weekdays at 10:00 a.m. for camps, groups, pre-schools and elementary schools. Discounted prices: groups of under 50: $9:00 for over 50: $8:00. Allow one free chaperone for every 7 children.
