Imagine This! 2023-2024

"Imagine This" is not your average puppet show! This yearly event is comprised of 14 different stories written by kids, for kids. This is our favorite program to produce each year as it is always different and very exciting. Kenilworth Elementary students write original stories and a panel of judges chooses the best to be made into shows by our professional puppeteers using a variety of puppet styles.

Expect a high energy, creative show filled with some wild antics and originality! Recommended for ages 5 and up.

Support Us

We are so proud of the work we do with our small staff of professional puppeteers and theater artists and we are excited to re-open our doors after over a year! Throughout the worst of the pandemic, we provided drive-in shows to families who needed a break out of the house to see live entertainment. While we are so happy to return indoors, we are still facing a large loss of income from limited school and child care performances and the likelihood of no school field trips in the coming year. Please consider supporting us today with a monthly donation of any amount. Every little bit helps!
