Puppet making workshops are $7 (per puppet made) with a $49 minimum charge. Before the show, the birthday child will get a crown, will be called up to the front of the theater and will pick a small puppet from the Magic Birthday Apron, will receive a birthday card and a free pass to attend any future show at the puppet theater.

Puppets for Puppet Making Workshop
For birthdays you get a crown, a birthday card, a free pass for your next visit and a small puppet from the Magic Birthday Apron.
We have samples of the following felt puppets. We also provide a large assortment of supplies for children who prefer to make puppets from their own imagination. We also help children make something not on the list. We may be able to do a special request puppet sample for a particular party - just ask! There is no set age for the workshop but we do ask that there be some parent volunteers in the group.
Brownie Girl Scout
Daisy Girl Scout
Dress up Kitty
Phantom of the Opera
Due to park restrictions, we are not allowed to have food or drinks in the theater but many of our patrons enjoy the grassy area in front of the theater as a picnic area for party festivities. Attend the show and invite your party-goers to enjoy the park outside on the lawn in front of the theater. Eva Kvaas offers a puppet making workshop (please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org).
