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


    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.

Founded in 1978 by Vincent Anthony, it's the nation’s largest organization dedicated to the art form of puppetry. Kermit the Frog and his creator Jim Henson cut the ceremonial ribbon at the opening.

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....

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 ....

RMy kids (4 & 9 years) love the puppet shows here we've seen a few and it's always a good experience for them. They lived the build a puppet workshop too that is included in the ticket price.
