Thistle Theatre, with 27 years of experience, presents a season of four school shows at three locations Magnuson Park, Ballard and Bellevue. Professional productions feature handcraft puppets, props, scenery and original music. Tabletop Bunraku-style puppets (operated by two or three puppeteers) tell multicultural stories with music and song. An education guide and post-show demonstration support the educational experience with multi-show discounts, and teachers are always free. Thistle Theatre also offers smaller interactive individual classroom performances.
Ticket discounts for children on free and reduced lunch, teacher free
