We are so excited about our line-up this year! Four different companies between December 27 - January 1st with ELEVEN different times to choose from!
This year we have focused on being inclusive and accessible. We are excited to announce that this year we have a performance that will have ASL interpretation. We are grateful to a grant through TheatreLAB, the Richmond Virginia Theatre Alliance, and CultureWorks that makes this possible. Our venue is handicap accessible, and we want to make sure we are doing our best to be welcoming to all families.
We also know that you don't like ticket fees (we don't either), so we have worked hard to make sure you don't have to pay them this year. (Be sure to thank our donors!) Keeping our costs down has been a top priority.
We also know that you like variety. And choices! This year, we have morning, afternoon, and evening shows so that all families have options to fit their busy schedules. There are classic tales, original works, a ventriloquist, nonverbal performances, rod puppets, hand puppets, and so much more!
We are so proud of our line-up this year! We've put a lot of work into growing our series so we can grow the puppetry scene in Richmond. We hope YOU can be part of the adventure!
