KC Edventures Guide for Ages 6-8

Paul Mesner Puppets

Come enjoy the story, the puppets and the laughs!  You'll think the puppets at the Paul Mesner Puppet shows are actually alive - they have such great personalities.  This season, the shows are all based on popular children's stories too!  Highlights this season include:

Before the Show:

  • Make sure to read the book with your child - they may recognize some of the story during the show.
  • Ask kids what they think the puppets might look like and what types of puppets might be used in the show.
  • Get there early - these shows are very popular with school groups.
