Previous Theatre Shows in 2022

"Everybody Loves Pirates"

Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers

Sun, May 22: 1:00pm

Eight-year-old Lucy and her goofy pal Little Chucky are searching for buried treasure, but a gang of bumbling pirates keeps getting in the way! The kids get some help from their new ocean-dwelling friends, including enthusiastic superhero Lobster Boy, his reluctant sidekick Crabby, and an overgrown sea monkey! Features 15 hand-crafted mouth and rod puppets, and an 8 Foot paper-mache pirate ship.

The Silver Circus

Sat, May 14: 7:00pm

How do you do something as big as a circus when you’re only one person? In The Silver Circus, Andrew Silver explores the concept of perseverance as he is faced with the daunting task of presenting a full circus show all by himself! Featuring spectacular magic, juggling, physical comedy, and tons of audience participation, Andrew presents a one-of-a-kind exhibition of skill and comedy. By adapting techniques and themes from the new vaudeville clowns, Andrew has created a masterpiece of modern performance for all ages

Following Covid-19 CDC guidelines, as of May 6, 2022 we recommend all visitors to The Waldo wear masks while inside the theater. We will have masks available for your convenience. We are limiting capacity in order to provide space between patrons.
