10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre
West 79th Street & West Drive, Central Park New York, NY 10023
Please note that capacity will be limited to 30 people inside the cottage at a time and at each performance and proof of COVID-19 vaccination with ID and a mask is required for ALL in-person experiences. See OHNY guidelines here.
For OHNY Weekend, attendees will have the chance to tour the legendary New York City landmark, see vintage marionette puppets, learn what it’s like to be a professional puppeteer, and experience this architectural gem in the heart of Central Park, open to the public for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The open house will also host two live marionette performance times at 11AM and 1PM, featuring a preview performance of the song “Anything Can Happen in a Dream” from the show “Wake Up, Daisy”, an original Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre show. The play tells the story of Daisy, a bombastic, lively little girl living in the heart of New York City in an apartment overlooking Central Park. At a much-anticipated birthday party, Daisy’s parents invite everyone to celebrate, including three special guests from Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx who grant her gifts of courage, knowledge, and a second chance. When an unwelcome guest shows up and casts a curse on her, Daisy’s life is changed forever.
