Coming in April

I Love Pete

Sat. April 9, 2022

Georgia’s own Pete the Cat takes the stage this April at the Center for Puppetry Arts. As a member benefit, there will be an opening weekend event with special member-only activities. Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see details on this and everything that is happening at the Center.

Member-Only Opening Reception of Christmas Town

The Center was thrilled to welcome the Rudolph and Santa puppets from the 1964 Rankin/Bass television special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™ to Atlanta. At the VIP Opening Reception, Members were the first visitors to see this nostalgic exhibition and learn more about the history of the classic holiday tale. Activities included a visit with Santa, a Create-A-Puppet Workshop™, a complimentary hot chocolate and cookie bar, and a photo op with the rare Santa and Rudolph puppets.

Member-Only Opening Reception of
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

The Center brought the excitement of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance to audiences through a special exhibition. Puppets and props from the production were on exhibit for the first time ever at the Center for Puppetry Arts. At the Member-Only Opening Reception, Members were the first to preview the changes in puppetry and the mechanics of performance that have emerged since the making of the original film. Longtime fans and those new to puppetry discovered the artistry and craftsmanship behind the creation of the live-action epic.

Thanks to Your Field Trip Donations

Without the…school discount you provided, I’m pretty sure very few of our parents could afford for their child to go. We’re very appreciative. Today was the first time most (if not all) of our students have been to the Center and they all want to go back!
