Wednesday, January 26th    Snow Show

10am @ The Puppet Co. Glen Echo Park, Glen Echo, MD

Every Wednesday and Saturday at 10am, the Puppet Co. at Glen Echo Park has a special Tiny Tots performance specifically for those under 4.  This Wednesday’s show is, Snow Show, where you and your kids can enjoy a fun puppet show about snow- from snowmen to a snow bunny on skis.

The 30-minute Tiny Tots shows have dimmed lights and the kids sit on the floor.  The shows are performed by master puppeteer, Bob Brown, who founded the Smithsonian Puppet Theater (now called Discovery Theater).  The cost is $5 per person.  That includes babies in arms.  You can order tickets online as well as reserve them with no obligation.  They release the reserved tickets to the general public at 9:45.  A bit of advice- go ahead and pay for your tickets ahead of time.  The line for tickets is often long when you get to the theater, and it can sell out.  Call 301-634-5380
