I thought this would be a good activity for my six year old grand daughter, but honestly I loved it too. The performers manage to provide the unexpected delight in a very old medium of expression.

True old fashioned puppet theater where guests are treated at the door by the ushers in costumes. Relaxing atmosphere, kids are invited to seat near the stage. We just saw "the nutcracker" and I highly recommend it. Amazing adaptation of the beloved Christmas story.

Nice children's puppet shows. Kids can sit on floor w/parents or parents can sit back on circular bench along wall.

I've seen 2 performances at the Puppet Co. and loved them both. The Three Little Pigs was told from the wolf's point of view!

We saw "The 3 Little Pigs" and it was a unique twist on an old favorite. Even though the theater had an advisory for children younger than 3 1/2, my 2 1/2 year old was fine with the slightly-scary moments (she sat on my lap)....More
