March 29, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Puppets – on hands, on strings, with wings – will flock to Boston Children’s Museum to celebrate the World Day of Puppetry on Sunday, March 29, 2015. Come join the puppets and members of the Boston Area Guild of Puppetry for a day of performances, puppet-making, and demonstrations that will delight all ages.
Join puppeteers in The Common on the second floor of the Museum to make a puppet, try one out, or watch puppeteers demonstrate their skills. Bring tiny tots to the Kindergarten Room for 3 special performances 11:15, 12:15, or 1:15 by Ron Comeau (Jubilee Puppets). All activities are included in Museum admission.
Meet friendly dragons, Chinese hand puppets and many more characters in the Guild exhibit area, curated by puppet-builder Barb Harrold (Crefftwr’s Trees).
