It’s time to fall in love with puppetry again! Our Fall & Winter line-up puts in-person seasonal favorites back on stage along with a new special exhibition and a flurry of special events and activities to usher in the fall and winter. For all of our activities at the Center, we continue to focus on your safety and well-being with limits on capacity, frequent cleanings, and the requirement of masks by all patrons and employees. Our Family Series in-person performances continue with Mother Goose and culminate in the return of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™. Before we get to the reindeer, we’re thrilled to announce that we’re bringing back the show that just won’t stay dead, The Ghastly Dreadfuls. For families, in addition to in-person seasonal performances, we are excited to announce Halloween at the Center with our second annual Monster Mash. Seasonal programming will continue into November with a special exhibition: Christmas Town 1964. This experience will include the puppets from the original Rankin/Bass production of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™, along with other artifacts of the period in an environment decked out for the occasion. If you can’t come to the Center, we’re happy to come to your classroom or your living room with our in-person or virtual outreach programming. In addition to our group programming, our Puppetry Playdates will be offered online every third Saturday of the month. This is only a sampling of what we have in store – and our planning continues. Make sure to follow us on your favorite social channels to see the latest. We hope to see you soon!
