The Puppet Showplace presents favorite fables, ethnic legends, and folktales and fairy tales from around the world. Professional puppeteers put on creative, engaging shows year-round in a lovely 100-seat theater. The theater displays historic puppets and puppet posters, offers puppet-making workshops and other classes, and sells toy puppets. Family performances take place on weekends, with shows for toddlers on weekdays. Adult-oriented "Puppets at Night" shows play this theater and other local venues. Check ahead for schedules and to buy tickets, which frequently sell out.
