It's been such a long time coming...entertainment once again being offered since March of 2020, when the coronavirus pandemic began. Even though my children are young adults now, I fondly remember when my husband and I brought them to see the Catskill Puppet Theater perform during First Night Oneonta events over the years. I always felt lucky that little Oneonta could have such highly professional puppet entertainment and I thoroughly enjoyed sharing that with my children on many occasions.

Catskill Puppet Theater has been around, touring internationally since 1979 with Carol Mandigo and John Potocnik as the co-founders. You may be familiar with Carol's work with crafting puppets since she has spear-headed creating the magnificent giant puppets we all have enjoyed over the years in a variety of Oneonta parades.

The show is described as "an old time musical melodrama entertaining for young and old" that will be interactive with the audience. Get ready to boo the villain and help the heroes to save the day.

There's nothing quite like a good, old-fashioned puppet show and for this one, the ticket prices sure are low with tickets ranging from $5 to $7 thanks to sponsorship help so get tickets now since space is limited for these two shows due to COVID restrictions. Masks and social distancing are required for attendees.
