Presented by the Wilton Historical Society
TimeOut New York Kids’ BEST PUPPET THEATER IN NYC
Can’t see your grandchildren? Give them the gift of this Zoom puppet show – and you can attend, too, on the same ticket! It’s a great way to share time with them no matter where they are!
After their sold-out holiday puppet show at the Wilton Historical Society last year, WonderSpark returns virtually. Puppets and kids – and parents and grandparents – get into the holiday groove with a live-streaming, engaging performance of ”The Gingerbread Man”. Fusing puppetry and storytelling with memorable characters and sing-along songs, here is the classic story of a little running cookie – with a holiday twist. Watch the Gingerbread Man outwit and outrun various hungry animals – and figure out what he really wants for Christmas!
WonderSpark engages kids of all ages as they listen, laugh, interact directly with characters, and can ask questions about puppetry and storytelling afterward. Includes a DIY puppet craft activity following the show, demonstrated by a puppeteer. Puppet show runs 35-40 minutes.
WonderSpark Puppets performs highly interactive puppet shows throughout the world! Since 2009 they have been entertaining family audiences at NYC landmarks like Central Park, New York Public Libraries, and Bryant Park, and since 2020 have been streaming online to schools and families internationally.
$25 per family.
