The doors open at 2:30 p.m.  Since we do not have a lobby, in inclement weather, we suggest that you remain in your vehicle until about five minutes before we open.

At 2:30 p.m. as the doors open the pre-show activities begin.  The audience is greeted by the puppeteers who seat the children in front of the puppet stage while adults are seated in chairs around the perimeter of the theatre. The children are introduced to marionettes as the puppeteers stroll through the audience with some of the puppets. After about fifteen minutes of audience participation the stage curtain opens and the show begins. At the conclusion of the performance the curtain re-opens and the puppeteers  answer questions about the show and demonstrate the technique of marionette manipulation with some of the characters from the show.


Post-show birthday parties at our regular Saturday and Sunday shows begin after the performance when the rest of the audience leaves the theatre. Private Birthday Parties on Saturdays and Sundays are booked at 11:00 a.m.(see link above)


Groups are booked at any time during the week.  For groups of 0ver 50 people the cost is $8.00 per person and for under 50 the cost is $9.00
