27th Season of Puppet Theater!

General Admission Tickets $10

Below is our 2018-2019 Family and School 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 tabletop Bunraku puppetry, a variations of 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.

The Magic Teakettle

 

~Japan

A teakettle is placed over the fire for the tea ceremony and it sprouts a tail, a head and the four legs of a Tanuki (a raccoon-like animal found in Japan).  Fearing it, the priest returns the Tanuki to Suzu, the peddler woman. Grateful for her kindness, the Tanuki reveals he is Bumbuku Chagama, a teakettle of good luck who can perform acrobatic tricks.
