Celebrate New Year’s Eve with a puppet show in Fairburn!

We will be performing Wish Tales at the Fairburn Branch of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library on Wednesday, December 31 at 11:00 am. Even if your child likes to make New Year’s Resolutions for better habits or behaviour, they still might need to learn the lesson of the Knee-High Man, that he is fine just the way he is. The show also tells the stories of the Frog Prince and the Little Orphan Animal.                                                                         60 Valley View Drive, Fairburn, GA 30213  (770)306-3138

We’re a little late with our holiday show update, but there are a couple of chances coming up to see a Piccadilly Puppets Christmas show:

Saturday, December 13, 10:00 and 11:30 am at Aurora Theatre (Lawrenceville) These shows fill up, so make a reservation or come early. http://www.auroratheatre.com/education/childrens-playhouse/

We’re welcoming summer with a “splash!”

We are so excited to announce the world premiere of our new show, Splish, Splash: Water Stories! Developed with the help of Project WET, this show explores our most precious resource in a fun and educational way! Large hand-puppets are used in the Australian folktale of “Tiddalick the Frog” and the Creek legend “Rabbit Plays Tug-of-War,” which demonstrate that water is important to all cultures. The original shadow puppet piece, “The Adventures of Drip and Drop,” shows the water-cycle from the point of view of the raindrops. As the closing song says, “Everybody needs a little water!” Best for ages 4-10.

See below for the schedule, including FREE performances!

Piccadilly Puppets hopes to raise $2000 in 24 hours to help us produce a new show (and keep the lights on at the same time). This is YOUR chance to make a real difference, right here in our community.

Of course, you don’t HAVE to donate to Piccadilly Puppets. There are hundreds of other wonderful organizations taking part, too.

Just click to donate on our page: https://gagivesday.org/c/GGD/a/piccadillypuppets

The site is actually up & running all year long, so it doesn’t have to be done on Wednesday.
