Boats is the story about a man named Jof, as told by his friend Nic. These two life-long friends and mariners, who met through bizarre circumstances involving a chicken, a deserted island and a sombrero, escape their past and embrace the unknown future with a great sense of adventure.
The magic of storytelling unfolds right in front of the audience as scenes are depicted featuring acrobatics and spectacular sound effects created on stage. The characters of Jof and Nic transform the world by using everyday objects that would be found on a boat’s galley. From a circus made from a jacket to a storm made in a teacup, such imaginative use of space and puppetry has garnered Terrapin with a global following.

FOR TICKET INFO
Know before you go:
Audiences are encouraged to arrive early, as each performance includes an hour of free pre-show creative play activities and a reading area with an assortment of children’s books. The Center’s Education and Community Programs Department offers these enriching experiences to provide young people and their parents more opportunities to play together creatively. Studies show that this is critical to helping children develop their ability to think and problem solve.
Have you taken your family to see a puppet show before? Please tell us about it.
