Did you know that even snowmen and snowwomen experience relationship drama? Well… I didn’t either until I took my family to see Stan the Lovesick Snowman at the Center For Puppetry Arts. What better way to kick off the New Year then by visiting a new place? Neither I nor my family have ever been to the Center, so it was a new and exciting experience for us!
I won’t give the ending away but let’s just say that Stan realizes that although love can sometimes hurt, it should never reduce one to mush!
Go see Stan the Lovesick Snowman this weekend. It is entertaining and educational. At the conclusion of the show, the immensely talented puppeteers give an informative behind the scenes look into how they make the puppets come to life. We especially enjoyed seeing all of the different types of puppets and special effects.
The play is recommended for children ages four and over but my two-year old enjoyed the show and there were younger children in the audience who were also fine.
In addition to the show, a tour of the on site museum is also included with the price of admission. The museum is filled with puppets that have been used in past productions. It was interesting to see the different types of puppets used which vary greatly in size and style.
The show runs from now until February 2, 2014. On weekends there are three shows (11:00am, 1:00pm, and 3:00pm) and on weekdays two shows are offered (10:00am and 11:00am).
Seating is general admission. There isn’t a bad seat in the place but if you want to sit near the front of the theater, arrive early.
Complementary parking is available at the center.
