The Fairy Circus by Tanglewood Marionettes

Fairies, field mice, and other small critters dance to the music of favorite classical composers in this dazzling display of turn-of-the-century style trick puppetry.

Join us for a dazzling display of circus acts performed in an enchanted garden. The Fairy Circus is a showcase for turn-of-the-century style trick puppetry, performed by over 20 beautifully handcrafted marionettes. Fairies, field mice, and other small critters dance, play instruments, juggle, contort, transform, and fly through the air with the greatest of ease, all to the music of favorite classical composers. Each performance includes an interactive puppetry demonstration before and after the show!

All ages welcome, recommended for 3+

The company has received two UNIMA awards, puppetry's highest honor, for their productions An Arabian Adventure and The Dragon King.
