2015-2016 Season
Celebrating 23 Years!

General Admission Tickets $10

Below is our 2015-2016 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.

Brother Coyote and Sister Fox

 

Mexico
A delightful and hilarious adaptation of the beloved Mexican folktale. Brother Coyote wants one thing and one thing only, to catch and eat one of Doña Conchita’s plump chickens.
