Below is our 2019-2020 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 offers 28 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 storytelling and delightful music scores are hallmarks of our productions designed and built by artists in the Thistle Theatre studio.

The shows are 45 minutes with no intermission and are recommended for children 3 and up. There is free parking at all three locations: Magnuson Park and Sunset Hill Community Club serving Seattle and the BYT Crossroads Theatre serving the Eastside.
