Field Trips

Field trips to Puppet Showplace are a fun way to bring curriculum to life! Staff members can suggest a variety of shows that will be age- and topic-appropriate for your students.


Our shows highlight:

• Stories, art, literature, and music from around the world
• Developmental skills like counting, reading and expression
• Values such as sharing, teamwork, and conservation
