Farewell, Summer

It's nearly that time again! We will be closed for our yearly maintenance from September 1st through the 15th.

Be sure to catch our last show of the summer, The Twig Family, at 10:30 AM and 1:00 PM on Wednesday, August 27th and Thursday, August 28th.

In this original story by longtime puppeteer/artist Deborah Costine, the audience meets The Twig Family: Leaf, Fern and their daughter Mossy, who live in an oak tree in harmony with nature. Also in the tree are Robin and Baby Bird, Hyla the tree frog, and Gray Squirrel.
In this happy, gentle story, recommended for ages 4 and up, we learn about nature, living simply and confronting our fears.

Don't miss it!

Don't miss the perfect Summertime Puppet Show!

On Wednesday & Thursday, August 13 & 14 at 10:30 & 1:00, Len Gerwick of the Gerwick Puppets presents The Case of the Missing Woodpile. Also on Sunday, August 17 at 1:00.

Marylou and Bruce star in this musical mystery and are busy with all sorts of summer activities. Marylou builds a chicken coop, while Bruce builds a tree house, but along the way, the woodpile disappears! All the puppets, as well as the audience, have to help solve the mystery! Jon Klein, an instructor at Berklee College of Music, wrote the fun and gentle jazz score. You'll leave the show singing songs about summertime fun, peanut butter and applesauce! Recommended for ages 4 and up.
