Thanks, appeal from friendly local puppet theater

Lance Eaton of Arlington, a trustee of Puppet Showplace Theater, wrote the following letter to the editor:


Did you know that you have a renowned puppet theater right in your backyard?

Puppet Showplace Theater, celebrating its 45th year, is in the heart of Brookline Village. This year, with help from Arlington and communities throughout greater Boston, the group celebrated 110 birthdays, was host to more than 300 performances for kids and families, and 20 for adults and teens, and taught puppetry to students prekindergarten through adult in camps, classes, workshops and residencies. 

Generous support from Arlington members and theatergoers helps us to achieve our goal of providing a vibrant, welcoming, and culturally responsive puppetry center that inspires creativity and invites participation by people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. 

Your donations fund new productions, community engagement, curriculum innovation, artist investment, theater upgrades, and field trips for kids from all backgrounds. We hope you will support our winter appeal -- -- to help us to envision the future at Puppet Showplace in 2020. 

December vacation week

We also invite you to join us for four exciting shows during December vacation week (Dec. 21-Jan. 1): "The Fairy Circus," "Cinderella," "Peter and the Wolf" and "The Amazing Story Machine." Puppet Showplace Theater is a popular destination during December vacation, so get your tickets here >>  

We look forward to sharing more laughter, joy, wonder, and discovery with you in the New Year. To learn more about how to visit the theater, support our work, volunteer, and make imagination possible for all, visit or call us at 617-731-6400.
