Award-Winning Children's Theater


Playing at the Puppet Co -- Pinocchio

Half life-size rod puppets, performed in the Italian "Comedia del Arte" style, tell Carlo Collodi's story of what it means to be "real". Share the trials and tribulations of the little live puppet as he finds in one adventure after another that the "easy way" isn't always the right way. October 5 - November 17, 2017.


Playing at Adventure Theatre MTC  -- Frosty the Snowman

Do you want to build a snowman? How about watching him spring to life in front of you for one day of adventures before he melts away? In this merry wintertime romp, chock-full of chuckles and comic antics, Frosty dances into the hearts of kids and adults alike - even the heart of one near-sighted cop - through his uproarious antics. November 17 - December 31, 2017.
