Puppet Playtime May 2024

Puppet Playtime May 2024

Join us for Puppet Playtime!

Puppet Playtime gives children aged 3 to 5 the opportunity to engage in a new experience of storytelling and puppetry. Each session features a popular children’s book, with an acclaimed WA performer presenting the story in their unique performance style.  This can include puppetry, musical accompaniment, object theatre, movement and dance, and more. The world of puppetry is vast, and attendees will learn about a new element of puppetry each month. Each session, children will craft a puppet designed by our talented puppetry professionals.

This month’s feature story is Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.

About Where the Wild Things Are

Calling all Wild Things, big and small! Join us for a magical journey into the land of imagination as we dive into Maurice Sendak’s timeless classic, ‘Where the Wild Things Are.’ Gather round for a Puppet Playtime session filled with adventure, wonder, and the power of a child’s imagination. Let’s sail to the land of the Wild Things together and discover the magic that awaits.
