Thistle Theatre is a professional puppet theatre for families…

performing in Bellevue, Ballard and Seattle. Daytime school performances are offered at all three locations. Theatre Theatre tours schools and communities specializing in Tabletop Bunraku-style of puppetry.

What is Bunraku

We specialize in Tabletop Bunraku , a variation of the ancient Japanese style of puppetry. The puppeteers are dressed head-to-toe in black and operate the puppets from behind. Good storytelling, realistic movement and excellent manipulation are the hallmarks of Thistle Theatre productions.

The Bunraku is fascinating to watch & each production has many levels of understanding. Over half the season ticket holders are adults, and not all of them bring children! Quality theatre has no age limit. I hope you will consider Thistle Theatre for your puppet theatre entertainment needs.
