Now Celebrating Our 20th Season!
Creating new theatre for the Pikes Peak region

September 23 – 24

Friday, September 23 @ 7:30pm / Saturday, September 24th @ 7:30pm


An evening of puppetry curated for the curious adult! 

Children over 15 are welcome, but the performance is geared to a “grown-up” audience. 

Puppet slams happen all over the country and now you get to enjoy one right here at  your favorite little theatre –  aka The Millibo!

What is a Puppet Slam? 

A Puppet Slam is a showcase of new and original puppetry and the content ranges from comedy to tragedy and everything in between.   The evening might include a hilarious hand puppet scene, a haunting shadow performance or a dramatic, and moving marionette dance.  Who knows, a life size Pegasus puppet might wander through!  You never know!  Each piece is performed by a different artist and the performers include everyone from seasoned professionals to first-time puppeteers.

 After the Slam join us for the Puppet Lab right in the Millibo lobby.  You can enjoy a post show drink and meet the puppeteers.  It’s your chance to get up close and personal with the puppets, take pictures, see how things work and even try out puppeteering!
