I am a child care provider and took my kids to the puppet show, they were fascinated and their imaginations where intrigued. There is no beating a great story. Get there early to get a seat, otherwise you sit on the floor and at my age it gets uncomfortable pretty quick.

This was a great morning outing for my 5 year old and 3 year old. This is one of the first shows that had my YO complete attention and he laughed out loud the whole show.

It's a little worm. No need for a light sweater. Dress for warm weather. It's an older building not sure the air blows in there. Loved watching my children's face smile.

Do not have to get there super early. Little little ones (2-3 year olds) might not make it through.

I took my two young granddaughters, aged 6 and 7 to the Monkey and the Pirate. They loved it and I found myself and their mother enjoying it as well. Job well done!!!

Demonstrating inventive takes on old myths is par for the course at Great Arizona Puppet Theater, whose adaptation of Cinderella won the 2010 UNIMA-USA Citation of Excellence in puppetry. Behind the scenes, professional puppeteers guide the characters through kid-friendly narratives, both ancient and original. Their performances often include a timely moral that parents can discuss with children with the help of accompanying study guides, which encourage guests to analyze themes and ask questions such as "how can puppets talk if they have no brains?"

The puppet masters have more than 50 tales in their collective memory. They perform them in the historical, hand-painted theater space five days a week, as well as at area schools and functions. By crafting scripts that address Arizonian themes, including the conservation of endangered condors and figures in Native American folklore, they hope to educate and engage their young spectators. Guests can interact with the stories even further by adopting puppets from the onsite gift shop or by attending a private party, where they create their own hand puppets out of paper bags. Additionally, seasonal adult shows prove that puppetry can be as edgy as any other art form.
