“The 3 Billy Goats Gruff” is a marionette romp in which three brothers get the goat of a hen-pecked troll, in their attempts to trip-trap-tromp to where the grass is greener. Three variety numbers precede the performance, demonstrating the making of a simple hand puppet, and manipulation of rod puppets and marionettes, as an introduction to the Art of Puppetry.

The elegance of 17th-century France, combining elaborate costumes of the Comédie-Française and Offenbach's "Gaiety Parisian" to adorn the tale of the cinder girl who captures the heart of the handsome prince.

The Wizard of Oz • June 16 - July 23
Funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, the tale follows closely the original story in L. Frank Baum's first, best known and best-loved of the classic Oz tales: There are more adventures than included in the film: more of Baum's original dialogue is included: and, the witch plays only a minor (less scary) role.

Circus! • July 27 - August 27
In grand circus tradition, the "Greatest Show on Strings" features a collection of clowns, death-defying acrobats, and an amazing menagerie of fauna from the farthest reaches of the globe. Many of the acts were built more than 50 years ago by Christopher’s parents for "Len Piper’s International Marionette Circus."
