Celebrating our 21st Season!

For the last two seasons Thistle Theatre has gained national recognition as a guest company at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, GA, the largest puppet center in the United States.

Thistle Theatre offers the most affordable, professional theatre experience to families in the Puget Sound area. If you haven’t visited one of our three locations yet, join the thousands of families that have enjoyed our performances.

Thistle Theatre is at the forefront of evolving and exploring this increasingly popular Japanese style of puppetry. Our own hand-crafted puppets are brought to life by puppeteers dressed in black, operating the puppets from behind for realistic movement. The puppets, props and scenery are designed and created by Thistle Theatre artists. Our productions are carefully crafted to have layers of action and language to please audiences of all ages, each performed by a team of professional actor/puppeteers with excellent character and singing voices. This season each 45 minute play is appropriate for ages 3 and up.

  • Remind your child’s school about our weekday school shows and workshops.
  • Celebrate birthdays at one of our shows or enjoy a birthday show in your home.
  • Thistle Theatre’s Children’s Ticket Subsidy Fund continues to give discounted or free tickets to low-income children and families.

We invite you to add a donation to your ticket order this season to support our effort to bring quality puppet theatre to children in need. Through Thistle Theatre's Children's Ticket Subsidy Fund we are able to give discounted or free tickets to low-income children and families at all three of our locations. We invite you to add a donation to your ticket order this season to support our effort to bring quality puppet theatre to children in need.

We sincerely thank 4Culture - King County Lodging Tax and our generous individual donors for their support.

Together with the Thistle Theatre Board, artists and puppeteers I look forward to you joining us for a magical season of puppet theatre.

Jean Enticknap - Artistic Director

Tales of Peter Rabbit

 

~ Great Britain
"The Tale of Peter Rabbit" and "The Tale of Benjamin Bunny" are combined to reveal the beloved world of Beatrix Potter. On a beautiful summer morning the lovable hedgehog Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle merrily journeys to the fir tree home of Mrs. Rabbit. She is delivering the freshly washed clothes of Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter. Little does she know that Peter is going to wear his clean blue jacket on a dangerous adventure in Mr. McGregor’s garden!
