This was a great activity for a Saturday with young children. We had 6 kids in our group ages 1-14 and all of them enjoyed the show!The adults also enjoyed the humor! There are some hands on activities for all ages and the puppeteers were so kind. You can tell they really love what they do! Many of their puppets are hand made and they are happy to show them to the children after the show! My kids even were able to see the set up behind the puppet stage. My 14 yr old really loved that! There are all sorts of very reasonably priced puppets you can purchase as souvenirs. I can't say enough about how nice our visit was! Definitely worth going again! We can't wait to go see the Nutty Nutcracker when my stepson returns at Thanksgiving!

Great entertainment and presentation. The story was “Peter Rabbit “. Joe, the puppeteer, did an excellent job presenting the characters and telling the story of Peter Rabbit. My family had the best time and we all left with big smiles on our faces. Highly recommend this theater for kids of all ages, moms and dads, and grandparents. Great way to spend a family day together.

Just an absolutely marvelous time! Our young daughter who is only 14 months, was enthralled with everything inside the Theater, and especially the show she saw. Her 8 year old cousin enjoyed even more. I even had a good time and I don't normally like these sort of things! Such a great place and time for a family to get together and enjoy a great show and a great building!

Looking for something fun for my grandchildren I found Wonderment Puppet Theather and decided to give it a go. What a pleasant surprise. The quality of the production was amazing and Joe was so kind and generous with his talents. It was far more than a puppet show, the kids could have stayed and played all day! We will be attending this seasonally. Joe and Wonderment Puppet Theatre completely exceeded my expectations.

We took our two girls (4 and 8) to Wonderment and they had a great time. Joe does a spectacular job of entertaining everyone as soon as the doors open. The theater is colorful and creative, with plenty for everyone to explore before and after the show. After the show, Joe also showed the girls the puppets up close and gave them a look behind-the-scenes, which both really enjoyed.

Joe was so very welcoming to each & everyone in attendence. His creativity and craft kept each child and adult in amazement! Colorful, possitive and humorous design of his theater created a carnival like atmosphere. Very, very intertaining for young & old alike!

The Wonderment Puppet Theater recently re-opened with great Covid precautions, ready for shows on Saturdays and Sundays at 1 PM.

I enjoyed "The Little Red Hen Cooking Show" almost as much as my 6 year old and her grandmother. It was great to see my daughter laugh and enjoy the entertaining characters. She even got to "meet" the hen after the show! Joe taught her how to make a finger puppet and we all came away with wonderful memories and photos.

My SO and I visited the Wonderment Puppet Theatre out of curiosity. We were the only couple there without children and we had a terrific time. It's amazing to see a small town year-round theatre doing original work of any kind. To see a puppet theatre that's been around as long as this one is astonishing. This man is clearly doing what he loves and his excitement for his work and the way he treated every single guest, adult or child, was amazing. The puppetry itself is basic at times, but the designs of the some of the puppets were very clever and the show was cute. The kids were loving it. I really hope people who live in the area realize what a treasure this is, because this sort of thing doesn't exist very many places and once it's gone, you're unlikely to see another like it.

This is a very interactive, child oriented puppet theater! What an experience! One of the best puppet shows I’ve seen. Held every child’s attention and if they got up to roam there were other hands on activities. Children with special needs were so accepted. This was a fantastic opportunity to see a real puppet master doing an incredible interactive show for all ages!
Make sure you bring cash for both tickets and the gift shop.

We had our sons second birthday party here. The owner was super nice and showed the children around. The decorations are interactive and the children had a blast. The puppet show was highly entertaining and interacted with the audience. We are so happy we had his party here it was unique and entertaining. We will definitely be back.
