Puppets at Night 45th Anniversary Season: Puppets for the People!

Puppets at Night is Puppet Showplace Theater’s performance series for adult and teen audiences. These evening performances explore thought-provoking topics and showcase an astonishing array of puppetry styles. Performers include acclaimed internationally-touring companies, stars of the fringe circuit, and emerging puppeteers. 

This season, we harness the power of puppetry to strengthen our human community by presenting work that builds empathy, defies expectations, engages imaginations, and inspires action on both the theatrical and political stage.
