The Marie Hitchcock Puppet Theater will be reopening on October 1st!

We will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday,

11 AM, 1 PM and 3PM!

The Puppets have been waiting for this for over a year and seven months, and they are very happy to see their friends again!

They want you to know that the City Of San Diego, who owns the building, requires you to wear a Mask while taking in a show... Please protect each other and the children by following their rules!

First Show for the FULL month of October is

Mr. Cat and the King Of Autumn!

 When summertime disappears, Mr. Cat and his best friend Plumpkin go on a journey through cornfields, pumpkin patches and graveyards to find The King of Autumn. Maybe The King of Autumn can tell Mr. Cat why everything had to change? Lighthearted and humorous, this newly updated original work is presented by Kaivalya Arts Puppet Company.
