The award-winning Puppet Company Playhouse, located at Glen Echo Park, is a favorite place to take the kids. Classic children’s stories are retold using lifelike puppets, beautiful sets, and music. Shows are Thursdays and Fridays at 10:00 and 11:30am and Saturday and Sunday at 11:30am and 1:00pm. They also offer shorter programming called Tiny Tots for the 5 and under set. Shows are shorter and the lights stay on. After the show, ride on the carousel (May to September), try out their playground or run around in the Spanish Ballroom.
