Thoth and Horus, mechanical moving sculptures created by Eric Bornstein of Behind the Mask Studio in Somerville MA now adorn the Puppet Showplace Lobby! They were last seen at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, but have been rescued from storage to join the butterfly and hummingbirds, also designed by Eric Bornstein, currently on display that the theatre. The Puppet Showplace will be the home of these two Egyptian Deities for the remainder of the summer. Take a look for yourself before you see one of our many exciting new shows this month, or stop by anytime Tuesday through Saturday, 10am to 4pm when the Box Office and Puppet Store are open.
