I’m 71 years old and my whole life I’ve loved puppets. I was very excited when I retired here to learn that the Center for Puppetry Arts is just an hour drive away. I’ve enjoyed the shows there and enjoyed the museum exhibits. My son took me and his family there for my birthday several years ago before I became a member. My grandchildren, who are in their 20s, were amazed to see your production of Rudolph. It’s like a Broadway show!

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!

Kindergarten Teacher, Birney Elementary School


Thank you so much for the amazing experience…. We’re so impressed with the Center for Puppetry Arts’ level of commitment toward making the experience enjoyable for all students.
