Loved this Halloween themed performance. We were three 50+ sisters and our mom. A nice 20-25 minute rest. A few light laughs! Enjoyed watching the interaction with the audience, especially seeing the children's smiles! Their seem to be few activities for youth, if I had young ones I believe that I would consider this show a must.

20 min. professional marionette show done outdoors. A wooden stage, wooden benches to sit on, free popcorn, shade cover overhead and $5. Enjoyable for adults and children. Performer is not behind the scene so you can watch her move the strings. She makes her own marionettes as her grandmother and mother did. Very nice lady!!! Hidden in an alley along... More

We just love the atmosphere of the show. You also get a free popcorn with admission. At $5 a person/kid it can be expensive for a bigger family,... More

I took the grandchildren and we all had a wonderful time. The music and marionettes were marvelous. Very comfortable, informal setting. And only $5! It's a 20 minute show; no charge for children under 2.

This is a must-see when you are in Nashville, regardless of whether or not you have children. I am an actor by trade, and not inclined to applaud a sock, but that is NOT what this is. Peggy Melchior's theatre is a tiny space between buildings, and seems straight out of an old world fairytale. Trees form a leafy canopy... More
