The Center for Puppetry Arts is celebrating spring – safely! To make live, in-person performances on stage more accessible, the Center is offering a brand new, more flexible, cost-effective way to experience puppetry. The new Multi-Event Flex Pass is simple—the more all-inclusive family series tickets you buy, the more you save. Each ticket includes a performance, entry to the Worlds of Puppetry Museum, and a Create-A-Puppet Workshop™. The Multi-Event Flex Pass is available for all of the Center’s on-site live programming as well as select digital programming.
The Center opens its Spring Series on April 2 with Billy Goats Gruff and Other Stuff, a blend of several fractured fairy tale favorites performed by the award-winning All Hands Productions. Find out what happens when a greedy troll tries to charge a toll to the Three Billy Goats Gruff as they each try to cross his “Troll Bridge.” The Reluctant Dragon then takes the stage on April 16 in an adaptation of the Kenneth Grahame classic about the value of friendship. Princess Penelope loves to read about dragons. Imagine her surprise when she actually meets and befriends one!
On April 30, Little Red rides into the Center with the Big Bad Wolf working double-time in this twisted, tangle of tales in The Big Bad Little Red Pig Show. Lee Bryan, “That Puppet Guy” performs this fast-paced show that “squishes” together two childhood favorites with just one Big Bad Wolf who can really bring down the house. It’s a curly “tale” not to be missed! Then in Pinocchio, beginning May 14, upcycled thrift store finds get new life in this unique retelling of the most classic puppet tale. You’ll see baskets become crickets, cooking pots become foxes, and a puppet just might turn into real “live” boy. This solo “tour de farce” combines prop comedy, found object puppetry and original sound compositions for a laugh-out loud experience perfect for the whole family!
