For entertaining fun bring the family to an imaginative puppet show at the Great Arizona Puppet Theater. Even though innovative puppet shows are performed all year, don’t miss the fanciful ones the theater has in store this spring.
Parents and caregivers around the Valley know this theater is still a great value at $15 a show for adults and $10 for children.
Creativity abounds; local puppeteers create their own puppet characters and write the lovable shows. The Great Arizona Puppet Theater has truly been a point of pride for our city since 1983.
Check out some of the current and upcoming puppet shows at the theater.
