Happy Holidays from PST!
It may be hard to believe, but the Holiday season is upon us. As the fall draws to a close so does our Fall Membership Drive so it seems like the perfect opportunity to remind everyone of this great opportunity to support a wonderful local theater and become a member.
This popular classic features beautifully crafted hand and rod puppets, colorful scenic design, special effects and an original script in which Jack, with the help of a clever Chicken, saves the day! The Spring Valley Puppet Theater production of "Jack and the Beanstalk" holds many surprises in this new approach to this old favorite

This coming Saturday, the 19th of November, in addition to our regularly scheduled children's performances PST will present our November " Puppet Slam" featuring Puppet Pandemic! What is a " Puppet Slam?" you may ask. Well let us explain...Too many of people think of puppets as a form of entertainment for children. Well here at PST we ask the question " Why should kids have all the fun?" Adults need puppets too!! In that spirit every other month we bring you our "Puppet Slam," An evening of puppet vignettes designed for an older crowd ( recommended for ages 16 and up). Each piece is performed by a different artist or artists, and the content can be wide-ranging; some are elegant or poignant, others are satiric, irreverent, or humorous, and still others can be passionate, political, or spiritual in nature. If you have never been to a "Slam" before you should know it is really an experience not to be missed. If you are a seasoned "Slam" aficionado you know where you should be this Saturday! for more info and for the schedule of all upcoming slams at PST check out out website. Just a warning, this event tends to sell out so buy your tickets today!!
