Mid-morning Puppetry

As this is my daughter’s first week of Summer Camp (she’ll be in Pre-K in the Fall) I got my first real opportunity to chaperon a field trip this morning. Her class went to the Center for Puppetry Arts to see their performance of Beauty and the Beast.

This isn’t the Beauty and the Beast of Disney or Linda Hamilton/Ron Perlman, but it’s really clever. Think found object puppets meets Mister Rogers’ land of make believe and you’ll get the picture.

Anyhow, if you haven’t seen a stage play or a puppet show through the eyes of a child recently (or ever) I highly recommend going to the Center for Puppetry Arts. Plus, once the show ended the performers stepped out into the light and explained some of the behind-the-scenes magic. Kids and adults alike can appreciate all the tricks of the trade that make such a wonderful performance come to life.

    As the girlfriend of the Center’s Audience Development Manager, I second your review and highly recommend the Center for Puppetry Arts! Especially their adult halloween show…it’s effin’ amazing! :)

    Dood. Bonus for the fact that PIGS IN SPACE live there…which I didn’t even know until my pal Kelly posted pics in her Flickr. I so need to go.
