Puppetsburg is interactive puppet shows for the youngest audiences. Join us for a fresh new show each week, like "Farm to Table with Old McDonald," "The BEYONCE Show," or "Clementine goes to Burning Man!" Puppetsburg is edgy babytainment for the new generation of parents. You'll love the integration of cultural, educational, and language elements into each show, as well as regular visits from celebrity puppet guests like Michael Jackson, Ai Wei Wei, and Ru Paul. Engaging for munchkins and adults alike, each story is broken into activities like dancing, instruments, interaction with our artisanal handmade puppets, bubble time (!), and a new dress-up #Photo-op each week. (Favorites include dressing your munchkins up as sushi, our favorite Williamsburg graffiti, or even Baby Gaga. . . ) Check out our video at www.puppetsburg.com, or follow us @Puppetsburg on FB + Instagram to check out some of our #Photo-ops and learn more. We also do AWESOME Birthday Parties and Corporate events, or--- bring a season of Puppetsburg to YOUR building for weekly community-building shows! FIND OUT WHAT OUR WEEKLY SHOW IS ON OUR WEBSITE OR FB! Notes: • Get your camera (and munchkin!) ready for a different #Photo-op each week, and don't forget to post your favorites and tag us, of course. . .
