Upcoming Shows & Events

While the inside of our historic building is currently closed due to COVID-19 and we consider how to safely re-open our doors, The Great Arizona Puppet Theater is offering drive-in entertainment!

Our weekend drive-in shows are presented on a limited basis to keep our puppeteers safe in the summer heat and to ensure a good view of the show for everyone who comes down. We plan to add more performances when the weather cools down. See below for all details and call 602-262-2050 x 0 today to reserve your spot!

Drive-in show schedule is subject to change due to weather conditions and the health and safety of our puppeteers. Reservations and pre-payment are required.

If you're interested in booking a Private Mini Drive-In show at the theater for up to 6 vehicles, give us a call at 602-262-2050 x 0.
