The sensory friendly performance on Feb. 16th is designed for guests with sensory sensitivities (such as Autism Spectrum Disorder) and guests with unique learning needs. Modifications are made to the lights and sound at both the puppet show and the museum.
Know before you go
Every puppet show at the Center for Puppetry Arts is followed by a “talk back.” This means the puppeteers turn on the lights and reveal some of the tricks of their craft — it is always fascinating and enlightening to see how puppet show magic is created.
Every show also includes a FREE puppet-making workshop afterward. This time round, you’ll be making a Stellaluna Rod & String Puppet.
Your ticket includes admission to the World of Puppetry Museum
Check out the World of Puppetry Museum while you’re there for the show! Your puppet show ticket gets you into the museum for free, either before or after the show — so plan for that extra time.
Museum exhibits include the Jim Henson Collection and the Global Collection, which showcases puppets from around the world. You’ll see puppets from Fraggle Rock, Muppets, Sesame Street, and the Dark Crystal.
The museum also includes interactive spaces where you can try your hand at puppetry.
If you’re only interested in the World of Puppetry Museum, you can visit without attending show.
A current Goldstar deal lets you save $3 on the price of admission. The Goldstar ticket price is $9.50 (although a $2.50 service fee is added on at a checkout).
