Great Arizona Puppet Theater (The)
Making magic through puppetry is Arizona's only puppet theater. Since 1983, this performing group has been introducing its unique theater to children and adults. It is located in central Phoenix in a lovely, recently renovated facility. Nearly fifty plays in the Theater's repertoire include "Cinderella" and "Hansel and Gretel", as well as lesser known stories, such as "The Elephant's Child" by Rudyard Kipling.Prices and schedule subject to change; please call for current shows and times.

I took my 4.5 year old daughter to see the Little Red Hen today. At first she was tentative in participating in singing with the puppets, but soon enough she was singing right along. She had a grand time and kept talking about the characters until dinner. This was her first time to watch in a theater and I am so glad she had a positive experience. Tomorrow is the last show on "The Little Red Hen". I will definitely be on the lookout for future children's shows. The shows are affordable, especially if you have the entertainment book coupon (buy 1 ticket and receive the 2nd one free).
The Great Arizona Puppet Theater has shows that cater to different age groups, even shows for adults! My near-4-year-old son absolutely loved the monkey and the pirate. It was one of the most adorable shows and the storyline was easy to follow: A monkey has a banana plant/tree and a pirate's mommy has sent him out to find some bananas so she can make him a banana cream pie. In the tradition of puppetry (going back to Punch and Judy) the slapstick abounds, and they eventually learn to share.
There is music and moving-around before the show and then they went over the rules to be a good audience member. What a great way to introduce young children to theater! It teaches children that there doesn't have to be flashing lights or explosions in order to have quality entertainment.
There was no story line in this "So Called" puppet show. A very small monkey puppet comes on stage and then a pirate comes on stage and they fight about who gets a bunch of bananas. My 3 year old was bored in 5 minutes.
Don't waste your time seeing this one !!
I took my two year old here to see "Baby Bear Goes to School." It was great fun for him. They had music time before the show and the show was well suited to his age. The kids even got to talk to the puppets after the show. We will be be going back again!
