Family Summer Show – Puppets Pizzazz
10:30 AM – 11:15 AM
at Ridley Township Library
This puppet show is set up as a variety show with over twenty-five professional hand puppets used to perform nine funny songs and humorous skits. In between each act, there is an MC puppet who tells jokes and riddles. Each song or skit is only about two or three minutes long, so it is easy to hold the children’s attention- including toddlers! What makes Puppets Pizzazz puppet shows different is that they take popular music from today’s artists and they put a satirical spin on it.
Family Fun Shows are suitable for ages 3-10, but all are welcome to join the fun.
Shows are free, and registration is not required.
Groups of 10+ must call in advance.
