PUPPET SHOWS FROM THE ARCHIVES

Play
Puppet Time!

With support from the Puppet Slam Network, the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre, housed in the historic theatre in Central Park, presented it's first-ever digital Puppet Slam, “Puppet Time,” originally planned to be performed live during Open House NY weekend. This showcase features familiar and never-before-seen marionette performances that demonstrate the collective and individual talents of the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre puppeteers, past and present.

Play
Yeti, Set, Snow!

Yeti, Set, Snow! tells the story of a young girl named Widget, and her friend, Twig, who encounter a yeti named Pascetti and pet cat, Tinsel Kitty, on the first snow day of the winter season. Pascetti, who lives on a mountaintop nearby, dislikes the snow. Through songs and snow day activities, Pascetti discovers not only that snow can be fun, but also learns the value of friendship.

Play
Puss in Boots

A classic story with a twist, Puss in Boots is the tale of two friends - Fergus Mundingle and his sly cat Puss - who are tired of their dull and penniless lifestyle. Looking for a change, Puss dons a snazzy pair of boots and sets off on a magical journey, proving himself a caring friend willing to help at any cost.
