Dear Teachers,  
Bring your class to affordable, quality puppet theatre.  A great way to support classroom curriculum and learn about the art of puppetry at one of our three locations: Magnuson Park, and Sunset Hill Community Club serving Seattle and the BYT Crossroads Theatre serving the Eastside.

Thistle Theatre offers 27 years of expertise in tabletop Bunraku puppetry, a variation of the ancient Japanese style of puppetry called Bunraku. The puppeteers, dressed all in black, manipulate the puppets from behind. With two or three puppeteers operating one puppet they skillfully bring realistic movement to the handcrafted puppets. Creative story telling and delightful music scores are hallmarks of our productions designed and built by artists in the Thistle Theatre studio.

  • Each production runs 45 minutes. Please allow time for post show demonstration and Q and A.
  • Education Guides align with Common Core State Standards, prepared by a certified teacher sent in PDF format.
  • Tickets for one show $7 each, two shows $6.00 each and three or more shows only  $5.00 each. Order by email: info@thistletheatre.org or by phone (206) 524-3388.
  • $3.50 subsidized tickets available for student on free/reduced lunch program. (Order by phone only (206) 524-3388.)
  • Free parking and school bus unload zones at all three locations. Public transportation is a viable option at all three locations.
  • Classroom teachers are free!

Jean Enticknap - Artistic Director

March Schedule

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.
