The festivities begin with priority seating for family and friends at one of our live puppet shows, including a special announcement before the show recognizing the birthday child. Next, it’s off to Harlequin Hall for the perfect birthday celebration! You can even add a Create-A-Puppet Workshop so each guest can make a souvenir puppet to take home. It’s a one-of-a-kind party for your one-of-a-kind kid!
