  • Hansel and Gretel • March 27 - April 27

    Humperdink's children's opera, full of magic, music and dazzling special effects. The puppets, lights, music and effects, are all operated by Christopher Piper, who also performs all the live vocal characterizations.  The production has long been a favorite of children and their parents, and is an excellent introduction to musical story for children.

  • Pinocchio • May 1 - June 8

    Half life-size rod puppets, performed in the Italian “Comedia del Arte” style, tell Carlo Collodi’s story of what it means to be “real”. Share the trials and tribulations of the little live puppet as he finds in one adventure after another that the “easy way” isn’t always the right way.

  • The Wizard of Oz • June 13 - July 20

    Funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, the tale follows closely the original story in L. Frank Baum's first, best known and best-loved of the classic Oz tales:  There are more adventures than included in the film: more of Baum's original dialogue is included: and, the witch plays only a minor (less scary) role.

  • Little Red & the Pigs •  July 24 - August 31

    What’s so bad about the Big Bad Wolf?  At last B.B. (Big Bad) Wolfe tells his side of the story, in rap, no less.  Has the notorious pork poacher and grandma impersonator gotten a bum rap, or is he truly deserving of his moniker?  You be the judge!  This is one of our funniest productions and includes lots of audience participation.

  • The 3 Billy Goats Gruff • October 16-November 21

    “The 3 Billy Goats Gruff” is a marionette romp in which three brothers get the goat of a hen-pecked troll, in their attempts to trip-trap-tromp to where the grass is greener.  Three variety numbers precede the performance, demonstrating the making of a simple hand puppet, and manipulation of rod puppets and marionettes, as an introduction to the Art of Puppetry.
