Celebrate our 39th Birthday with us!

Sunday, June 2nd

1:00-4:00 PM

Join us to celebrate Puppet Showplace Theatre's 39th Birthday with cake and more! Puppet fans can drop-in any time between 1pm and 4pm and enjoy rotating puppet performances, craft activities, and a community giant puppet parade. Participants will be able to bring home balloon animals and goody bags, or make their own puppet at fun craft stations. Tickets: $10 individual, $25 family ($8/$20 members).
Your contributions and "birthday gifts" to the theatre will help us share the magic of puppetry with children from across the Greater Boston Area this summer season. Thank you for helping to make our first family-friendly fundraiser a success!  If you cannot attend, consider making a birthday donation.


Another way to show your support and help us celebrate 39 years as New England's puppet theater is by purchasing raffle tickets! Tickets are $5 each, and can be purchased on line or at our event on June 2nd.

Support Puppetry This Spring at PST!

Just as a garden needs care and attention to thrive, a small theater depends on the generous support of members and donors in order to survive!  Please help us reach our fundraising goal this spring, so we can continue to bring the magic of puppetry to audiences of all ages! MAKE A DONATION

Maria and her daughter, Stella!
As a local Brookline resident, fan of the Puppet Showplace Theatre, and current board member, I was happy to be asked to write about our upcoming birthday party celebrations on the puppet blog!
We are very excited this year to be hosting two events for families, friends and supporters.  This is a great opportunity to learn more about the Theatre and all it does for the Brookline and Greater Boston community - all while eating cupcakes! 

On June 2nd from 1:00 to 4:00pm- we will be hosting a family-friendly Birthday Party to celebrate PST’s 39th Birthday.  The event will include fun games, puppet shows, and a Giant Puppet Parade down Station Street to the John Murphy Playground.  During the event there will be cupcakes and a raffle to help support the Theatre.

On June 4th from 7:00 to 9:00pm- we will be hosting our annual fundraising party with our Garden Party Gala.  For this event, we will be transforming the Theatre into an enchanted garden.  The evening will include performances by emerging artists including our very own Artist in Residence Brad Shur who will be presenting a piece of digital puppetry.  In addition, the Showplace is giving two awards to two outstanding individuals and artists.  The first is the Paul Vincent Davis Award for Puppetry that will be given to Andrew and Bonnie Periale of Perry Alley Puppet Theatre.  The second, our Creative Leadership Award, will be given to Norah Dooley who is the Founder of massmouth, inc.  an organization devoted to the art of storytelling.

I hope to see many of you at the Theatre for these events.  We are very excited to celebrate with our community of supporters all that we have accomplished this year!
