As one of the many highlights of the National Day of Puppetry, patrons will get to meet and watch Mallory Lewis – daughter of the late Shari Lewis – and the loveable Lamb Chop, whose performances never fail to rekindle cherished memories in those who grew up enjoying the charismatic duo. The performance, hosted by world-renowned artist Nicolosi, salutes 70 years of Shari Lewis and Lamb Chop and marks a special unveiling of a new commemorative United States Postal Service stamp featuring the beloved puppetry duo.

The Muppet Musicians of Bremen



Leroy the Donkey, T.T. the Rooster, Rover Joe the Hound Dog, and sassy Miss Casgut are determined to escape from their mean, rotten, masters… and their masters are equally determined to keep them down on the farm. Will the gallant, jazz-playing animals make it to freedom and fame? Only Kermit the Frog knows for sure… and you know what a great storyteller he is! A charming and music-filled modern fable.
