2013-2014 Season
Celebrating 21 Years!

Below is our 2013-2014 Show Schedule. If you haven't experienced Thistle Theatre, we look forward to introducing your family or group to our family of fun and exciting characters.

Thistle Theatre is the only performing arts organization in the Pacific Northwest that specializes in Bunraku puppets, an ancient Japanese style of puppetry. The puppeteers, dressed head-to-toe in black to suggest invisibility, operate all of the character’s limbs by hand from behind.
