Great Arizona Puppet Theater

302 West Latham St.
Phoenix, AZ, 85003, United States
TEL: (602) 262-2050

The building alone (an old Mormon church saved in the 1990’s and fully restored as a theater) is worth a look-see for the adobe architecture, but the stringed performers are what will entertain you. Not only does the theater present complete productions for kids, such as Little Red Riding Hood and a “Big Bug Circus,” it also hosts naughty late-night shows just for grown-ups called puppet slams; one featured a pirate theme and buccaneer-inspired drinks. The lead puppeteer in Being John Malkovich is also on the calendar. Puppet slams take place on Fridays and Saturdays, but the months vary, so check the Web site for upcoming events.
