A unique and epic theater experience
The Chicago International Puppet Festival is not some folksy, low-fi production—instead think professional theater productions from around the world including life size marionettes, shadow puppets, Bunraku puppets, tiny toy puppets, telling the most outrageous, and darkly comic stories of love, lust, and intrigue.
Nearly 50 different performances are currently slated as well as several workshops for burgeoning puppeteers, young and old. Note: only some shows are for all ages, so there’s some naughtiness to be had for those so inclined.
The performances run from January 14th through the 25th at various locations around the city. Book your tickets here.
