The Denver Puppet Theater is an intimate, kid-friendly theater that brings the magic of puppets to life. Watch as marionettes parade the puppet-sized stage dancing, singing, and talking to each other while interacting with the audience.
Enjoy original storytelling as well as old favorites. See fairytales reimagined, listen to new adventure stories, and applaud as puppets climb castle walls. Spark children’s imagination and reinvigorate your own inner child through the wizardry, illusion, and magic of puppets.
After each show, audience members are invited to stick around for an extra 30 minutes and get an up close look at the puppets. This hands-on experience provides answers to common questions while also being extremely fun! Decorate your puppet ticket and see what it’s like for the puppets behind the stage.
Who’s It For?
Kids and kids-at-heart will love watching the theater’s puppets undertake their latest adventures. Shows are recommended for children ages three and up, but younger children are permitted provided they can sit still for 50 minutes while the marionettes take the stage.
Adults are always welcome, and prices are kept low so that everyone can enjoy this form of entertainment. Bring your family for a morning or afternoon show and play with the puppets afterwards.
School Groups and Parties
School groups are always welcome at the Denver Puppet Theater. Groups under 60 may attend one of the public performances. Students are welcome to a theater tour, playtime with the puppets, and can bring a lunch to enjoy in the outdoor courtyard. For groups over 60, a private show is scheduled during the week. Field trip times are kept to two hours maximum including a half hour lunch break.
The theater’s birthday party packages offer two options, allowing for up to 25 guests. Refreshments are not provided, but guests may bring their own. Private or public performances are offered. In private performances, the birthday girl or boy becomes a part of the show. It’s a fun experience for everyone, and each guest gets to take home a special souvenir.
