You can enjoy online experiences with the Center for Puppetry Arts, even while it is closed for live puppet theater.
Here’s an overview of what the Center is offering, to keep kids and families entertained.
Upcoming programs include:
Live digital puppet shows via zoom
Zoom brings the art of puppetry right into your home! You simply buy a ticket online, and then receive a Zoom link where you can watch.
The Center for Puppetry Arts would like you to support their mission by purchasing a ticket for every member of your family who will be watching — but it is clearly on the honor system.
Pricing is $11 for the general public and $9 for members.
Performances are Wednesday through Sunday. Showtimes vary by date.
Live, interactive workshops
Enjoy interactive, curriculum-inspired puppet building workshops for children ages 4 & up. Participants become puppet makers and puppeteers as they each create a puppet and perform with it on our classroom stage.
The price varies by workshop.
