Upcycled thrift store finds get new life in this unique retelling of the most classic puppet tale. You’ll see baskets become crickets, cooking pots become foxes, and a puppet just might turn into real “live” boy.  This solo “tour de farce” combines prop comedy, found object puppetry and original sound compositions for a laugh-out loud experience perfect for the whole family.


Worlds of Puppetry Museum

The Worlds of Puppetry Museum includes two galleries: the Global Collection Gallery and the Jim Henson Gallery.  The Global Collection Gallery begins in North America and winds its way through Europe, Africa, and Asia. Learn the five main types of puppets; learn about some of the world’s most important puppetry traditions.  


A Reunion of Puppeteer

Join puppeteers from the Emmy Award-winning epic production of The Jim Henson Company’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. Go inside the making of the series through first-hand accounts from the people who performed the heroic Gelfling, iconic Skeksis, and myriad Podlings, Fizzgigs and other creatures that inhabit the world of Thra.
