Get Curious!

This spring, Puppet Showplace Theater explores the natural world, investigates mysteries, and encourages hands-on creativity in our "Get Curious!" series. Twelve interactive shows feature a variety of puppetry and theatrical styles, from hand and table-top puppets to live actors and music. Plus, in June, we welcome back Puppet Playtime, our popular interactive performance experience especially for toddlers!

"Get Curious!" runs from April 6 - June 17 and includes programming through April Vacation Week. (Learn more about the series here, and register for adult or youth classes and camps today!)
