Cinderella • May 4 – June 11
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 production was acclaimed at the 1997 National Puppet Festival, and performed by invitation at the Center for Puppetry Arts, in Atlanta.

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.
Age Recommendation: PreK-Grade 6 • Running Time: 45 Minutes
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."
