Legends Near and Far!

This November & December, join us here at Puppet Showplace for a series full of handcrafted tales to treasure forever! Fall into winter with eight spellbinding stories from around the world, plus a sneak peek of our February Incubator show “Go Home Tiny Monster.” Our series kicks off with a silly-not-scary reimagining of the beloved classic legend of Sleepy Hollow!

We are also thrilled to announce the premiere of Cozy Corner, a toddler series by the much-loved duo behind “I Spy Butterfly,” Faye Dupras and Max Weigert.

For adults and teens, in partnership with the BU Arts Initiative, we are thrilled to present a powerful Puppets at Night performance by Tarish Pipkins, also known as “Jeghetto,” who is visiting us all the way from North Carolina.

November also kicks off our second session of Puppet Lab After School! Register kids 9-13 now for this 6-week puppetry workshop.
