Tobin Center Hosts International Celebration of Storytelling through Puppetry
In a world of bits and bytes and game systems galore, the centuries-old art of puppetry remains a popular and captivating storytelling genre. That’s a good thing, for children of all ages. Make sure your children (and you!) don’t miss the Children’s International Puppet Festival at the Tobin Center May 6-12. For seven full days puppets will literally take over the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, including all three indoor venues and the outdoor Plaza.
Six different companies will perform 54 puppetry performances; multiple shows lasting 45 minutes to an hour will be available each day during the festival. Participants will have the opportunity to enjoy the artistic talents from some of the best professional puppetry touring companies in the world.
