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.
Don’t miss the Center for Puppetry Arts’ showcase of Martha Speaks. The classic children’s story about a talking dog comes to life thru puppet magic July 19-31. See the show and then make a puppet!
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!
Midtown's Center for Puppetry Arts features shows, puppet-making and tours. Adult shows complement the children's performances.
Anyone from age two to 82 will love the Jim Henson galleries – who can resist a cuddle with Big Bird? Reserve ahead for puppet shows; tickets go fast.
