Award-Winning Children's Theater

 

Now Playing at the Puppet Co -- Jack and the Beanstalk

A timely version of the classic children's tale about the young lad that doesn't know beans about trading, but still manages to climb his way to the top. Jack finds that happiness lies in helping others rather than mere personal gain. Told with rod puppets and some surprising twists, Jack has long been a favorite of our audiences. February 23 to March 26, 2017.

 

Showing at Adventure Theater  -- Ella Enchanted

Based on the Newberry Honor book by Gail Carson Levine. Baby Ella of Frell is given the "gift" of obedience and cannot disobey any direct order. Then when tragedy strikes, Ella is reduced to an obedient servant in her new home with Dame Olga. Can Ella find a way to rid herself of the troublesome curse? February 3 - March 19, 2017
