What is a Puppet Slam?

It's an evening of varied theatrical mini-plays for adults that use (or sometimes abuse) puppets for all or part of the drama.  Each piece is performed by a different artist or artists, and the content can be wide-ranging; some are elegant or poignant, others are satiric, irreverent, or humorous, and still others can be passionate, political, or spiritual in nature.  The performers range from the seasoned professional to the nascent puppeteer, and often include musicians, dancers, mimes, actors, and other sundry affiliated artists.

Tickets to Puppet Showplace Slams always sell out! Reserve your tickets online or call the Box Office today at (617) 731-6400 x101.
