In the midst of a highly anticipated expansion and renovation project, the Center for Puppetry Arts announced its 2015-2016 performance season, filled with classic tales, memorable characters and plenty of puppet fun for the entire family! The 16-show lineup features a brand new Center-produced show, a few returning favourites and a number of notable new and returning guest artist engagements.

In addition to its diverse performance schedule, the Center for Puppetry Arts offers many other programs. The Center's Film Series showcases puppets on the big screen, featuring classic movies, hidden gems and contemporary productions. Two live events are launching as part of this landmark season. One of them is: Jim Henson Trivia Night (date TBA) which will allow patrons to test their knowledge of the famous puppeteer's work and life.
Set to open in fall 2015, the new Worlds of Puppetry exhibit at Center for Puppetry Arts will house a comprehensive Global Collection as well the world's largest collection of Jim Henson puppets and other artifacts. These new galleries will be immersive and interactive, allowing guests of all ages to explore puppetry in new ways, challenging preconceptions and giving a new appreciation of the global scope and universal power of the art form.
As part of this project, the Center is also protecting and preserving hundreds of international and Henson treasures for future generations to enjoy and understand.
