What's New in May

A special "thanks" to the Boston Area Guild of Puppetry, our volunteers, and our sponsors for making The National Day of Puppetry a huge success! Over 280 kids, parents, and grandparents took part in the workshops, demonstrations, and performances. We're grateful for the support from the Brookline Commission for the Arts which made this event possible.

What a weekend!
We're excited to have a PST Premiere this weekend - Babui by Saltamontes Puppet Theater on May 10 & 11 at 1 & 3pm. Saltamontes Puppet Theater comes to the Showplace from Germany to perform the story of Babui, an imaginary animal, with a narrative that consists only of movement, sounds, and music.

Looking for something to do without the kids? Check out our final PuppetSLAM of the 07-08 season on Saturday, May 10 at 8pm.

Making Memorial Day Weekend Plans?
The popular troupe, Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers from Bar Harbor, Maine, return with Everybody Loves Pirates May 24 & 25. Two shows have been added on Memorial Day, May 26 at 1 & 3pm.

Love the Puppet Showplace Theatre?
Then come work with us. We're looking for some fun people to join us on our Box Office staff. This is a great position for parents, grandparents, students, and anyone who loves working with kids and families. Talk to Emily, our Box Office Manager, for details: 617.731.6400 or
