Spy some shadows, hang with a hedgehog and explore the deep blue sea this summer at the Northbrook Theatre!

Northbrook Theatre is teaming with Sea Beast Puppet Company to present a summer Puppetry Series featuring a variety of creative performances and storytelling. Audiences will enjoy entertaining twists on classic and original tales that are appropriate for young children and family audiences.

“Puppets are an excellent way to spark children’s imaginations and we’re excited to bring the Puppetry Series to Northbrook Theatre,” said Erin Sweet, Performing Arts Manager. “This is a unique opportunity for families to experience a different style of entertainment with a fun twist on traditional stories. Besides, who doesn’t love a puppet show!”
