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.

 

Coming Soon at Adventure Theater  -- 

Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp

This is Aladdin as you've never seen it before. Aladdin and his love, the princess Adora, must outsmart an evil Magician who wants to use the genie in Aladdin's lamp for his nefarious schemes! Will he get away with it? Get ready for love, magic, and mystery in this production for all ages. April 7 - May 21, 2017
