CENTER FOR PUPPETRY ARTS COUPONS IN 2015

  • Center For Puppetry Arts

    $15.00 for $25.00 - "anne Frank: Within & Without" -- Puppet Show Re-imagines Holocaust Story

    Tip

    The moving words of Anne Frank have taken many forms on screen and stage, but Anne Frank: Wit.. read morehin & Without may be the first production to turn them into a puppet show. It's a daring concept that manifests in a kind of macabre beauty as human actors manipulate the doll-like puppets, moving them fluidly throughout an exact replica of the annex rooms where Frank and her family hid during the Holocaust. More than just a re-enactment of Frank's Diary, the show explores the world outside the Secret Annex as well, with haunting scenes demonstrating the rise of European fascism and anti-Semitism during Nazi oppression and persecution. With post-show talk-backs after every show at the Center of Puppetry Arts, Anne Frank: Within & Without is a chance to re-engage with a familiar tale through the lens of a performance unlike any other.

Puppets aren't just for kids! Be sure to check out their adult focused shows too. A highlight every year and must see is the Ghastly Dreadfuls performance in October. Booyah!

I went to the Center For Puppetry Arts with my girlfriend near the end of their Jim Henson ode. It was absolutely charming. From the outside and by the parking lot, you expect the museum to be nothing too special, a bit shabby and run-down -- but once you get inside, those preconceptions just wash a....

We took my daughter to see "The True Story About the Three Little Pigs by Adolf Wolf." Which in my personal opinion is much funnier than the original. When you first come in, it has a museum set up that you can look at and some interactive games for kids. The theater was small and they used regular ....

They offer a range of activities including: theatrical performances, puppet making classes, and exhibit space to learn more about puppetry. Their Jim Hens....
