This weekend we were invited by The Center For Puppetry Arts, to see their holiday classic, Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer. It was a great show that lasted about 45 minutes and included a Rudolph themed shadow puppet craft after the show. The show runs until December 29th and costs $25 per ticket. Parking is free and admission also includes access to their puppet museum.
There are no assigned seats so we do recommend getting to the center early in order to get great seats. There is a special section reserved for The Center For Puppetry Arts members in the front two rows (Click here for more information on membership benefits).
The show is performed by 6 puppeteers who not only control each puppet but they also sing each song live. At the end of the show, the puppeteers demonstrates the different kinds of puppets used in the show and how they are used.
The Craft And Museum
After the show, you walk upstairs to several classrooms that are used to host the crafts sessions. There are several tables and more than enough room to host everyone that attended the show. It only takes a few minutes to create the shadow puppet but London and Kayson really enjoyed it.
The museum is separated into two sections. One section is more kid-friendly with sesame street characters, The Muppets, and other Jim Henson work. The other section shows more the history of puppets around the world and might be more interesting to adults
Overall it was a great experience and we recommend the show to anyone looking for something to do with their family this holiday season. If you guys plan on going or already went let us know what you think in the comments below.
