Why Should Kids Have All The Fun?

Saturday, July 21

8:00 pm
Rated PG-13

Come to the final Puppet Slam of the Season! For one night only, PST presents an evening of laughs, leisure, and lots of puppets!

With a wide range of themes and styles from the satiric and side-splittingly funny to the passionate and poignant, PST's Puppet Slam is puppetry entertainment created for teens and adults. The evening will include a variety of theatrical and musical performers with mini-plays and acts, all featuring puppets.

You may be asking 'but aren't puppets just for little children?.'  We certainly believe puppets are for everyone!  Puppetry has increasingly been gaining a hold on older audiences from local events like our very own Puppet Slams to musicals and movies like Avenue Q and Being John Malkovich.  

For this show, we're excited to welcome back one of PST's favorite slam performers, Bonnie Duncan, presenting work from her show-in-development, "Squirrel Stole My Underpants!" She'll be joined by veterans of the national slam circuit Melissa Creighton and Matt Martin (New York City, NY) along with Leila Ghaznavi (Philadelphia, PA). Don't miss the Boston-area debuts of their fantastic work! We're also excited to welcome local performers Allie Herryman and Brenda Huggins back to the stage, as well as some fantastic emerging artists...including several of PST's own summer interns! The multi-talented Phil Berman ("puppets? yeah, I do that...") hosts, featuring appearances from other musical guests.

Ever wanted to perform in a puppet slam? Stay tuned for announcements about how you can get involved!

Whether you plan on bringing a date, your best buds, or meeting some new people, this event is the perfect summer reprieve from the regular night at the movies. We've got air conditioning and a full lineup of puppets for your enjoyment! Our Puppet Slams always sell out, so if you'd like to join in on the fun, reserve your tickets online or call the Box Office today at (617) 731-6400.
