handpainted arches, the Theater is housed in a beautifully restored historic

outing, a school field trip, a birthday party or if you'd like us to come to you for
any occasion, we've got a great puppet show ready for you! See below for what we're

We're sorry to announce we will NOT be hosting a slam this August.
Our next slam will be September 5 & 6 at 8pm.
Join us after some special Saturday shows for a unique puppet making experience. Real puppeteers will walk you through
the process of making your own puppet to take home. We often base the type of puppet we'll make on the show
that is happening at the time. Workshops will take place at 3:30pm on June 21, July 12, and August 16 - just $15 includes all
supplies. Call us to register!
With the increasing popularity of our shows, it is more important than
ever to make sure you have made reservations
at least one day in advance. Give us a call and reserve your tickets TODAY! 602-262-2050
