Adult Puppet Camp

June 28th at 8pm

You asked for it, we listened.

2 drink tickets
3 make-N-take stations
whole lot of ridiculous

Every time we posted our youth camp we received inquiries about doing something for adults. So while we have all the stuff out, here we go.

Attendees will be able to make their own puppets and play with them… while drinking of course. Make basic puppets, yours to keep. Then receive some basic puppet training from one of Augusta’s only professional puppeteers (Ben Snead formerly of Ben and Keeter puppets) We will have some stage time for you to experiment with your own puppets or with some of the house “muppets” and possibly perform for one another. Drink tickets are worth one beer or glass of wine each, two tickets for the signature cocktail of the evening, a variation of a fuzzy nave)

tickets are $45 per person, or $80 per couple.

Donate to Le Chat Noir:

Thank you for all your support while our theatre has been closed.  We are a small, family run theatre that operates on our love of performance and a profusion of creativity, but also our ticket sales. In an effort to do our part to slow down the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we suspended all of our performances starting in April 2020. We reopened in July 2020 with extremely limited programming and capacity to allow us to continue safe practices during this unpredictable time. Please keep an eye on this events page and sign up for our newsletter to hear about all of our upcoming events! As we work towards regaining our programming, please be patient with us; and any support is immensely appreciated. We miss you all terribly and can’t wait to entertain you again!
