Spend part of your Spring Break at the B&O!

Puppet Show & Workshop

Natasha Mirny, founder of the Happy Theater, is bringing her Shadow Theater Show, Alphabetisimo: Where Do Words and Letters Go, After We Say Them, Do You Know? to the B&O! Join us for the story of the secret House of Light — where letters and words live, play, and create stories. The show will feature railroad-themed puppet letters. Afterwards, kids will be able to create their own shadow puppets during a workshop with Natasha Mirny. 

Natasha Mirny is a stage director, choreographer, performer, and founder of Happy Theater. She has a background in pantomime, puppetry, and physical theater. Over the course of the last seven years, Mirny has devised and directed more than ten shows for young audiences. She is currently teaching several theatrical arts and integration programs in Washington, DC such as Wolf Trap, Arts for Learning MD, Inspired Child, and National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts.
