Well, we have outdone ourselves this year! Four different companies. Six days. Fourteen performance times.
This year we have focused on being inclusive and accessible. We serve the Richmond region, and we want to make sure we are doing our best to be accessible and welcoming to all families. We know you don't like ticket fees, 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!
