Puppet Showplace Slam

What is a Puppet Slam?

Every other month Puppet Showplace Theater stays open late to showcase the region's finest short-form puppetry acts... for adults! Each piece is performed by a different artist, and the content ranges from hilarious to profound and everything in between.  The performers include everyone from veteran professionals to first-time puppeteers, and acts often feature musicians, dancers, circus performers, and other affiliated artists.
