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.
