Welcome!

The Great Arizona Puppet Theatre welcomes you! We are open year round, performing shows at the theater Wednesday through Sunday.

This year the Great Arizona Puppet Theater is turning 40. It's over the hill! So, we are throwing a party since it has lasted this long as a small non-profit company. That means this theater is indeed the 8th Wonder of the World. We're having a spectacular gala to properly celebrate this achievement. Click here to learn more about the 8th Wonder of the World Gala, and click here to order tickets. You don't want to miss it.

See below for what's coming next or look here for the full schedule of upcoming shows.

Make sure to buy your tickets in advance.

Check out our Imagine This Project. This creative project gets the kids of Kenilworth Elementary School to write stories and craft puppets like professionals.

Singing and dancing to original music make this a great show recommended for ages 5 and up. Download the Study and Activity Guide here.

Old MacDonald's Pumpkin Patch

This high energy, fun-filled Halloween show is great for the little ones! See the silliness ensue when all the animals on Old MacDonald's farm have to find a costume for Halloween. Told with hand puppets and rod puppets, this show has lots of sing-a-long fun. It's a Halloween treat! Recommended for ages 2 and up.

Support Us

We are so proud of the work we do with our small staff of professional puppeteers and theater artists and we are excited to re-open our doors after over a year! Throughout the worst of the pandemic, we provided drive-in shows to families who needed a break out of the house to see live entertainment. While we are so happy to return indoors, we are still facing a large loss of income from limited school and child care performances and the likelihood of no school field trips in the coming year. Please consider supporting us today with a monthly donation of any amount. Every little bit helps!
