Every summer some of our favourite characters come alive and tell the story of people living in Campbell River and the surrounding region. These 20 minutes puppet shows highlight stories of the significant events, people, and what life has been like in the region over the past 100 years.
Each performance is followed by a hands-on craft that compliments the learning themes in the plays.
Shows are typically on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout July and August and generally cost $3 per child. Private performances can also be booked depending on availability.
Young people aged 3 to 6 years enjoy these shows the most, but all ages are welcome.
The puppets have all gone to sleep for the winter but will return July 2024.
