Families are invited to “moooove” over to the Center for Puppetry Arts during the production of Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type, June 12-July 29! Based on the book by Doreen Cronin with illustrations by Betsy Lewin, “Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type” is a New York Times bestseller and a 2001 Caldecott Honoree that tells the story of what happens when Farmer Brown’s cows learn to type and go on strike. The book was adapted for the puppet stage by the Center’s Artistic Director Jon Ludwig and Resident Puppet Builder Jason Hines.

Recommended for ages 4 and up, Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type features rod and marionette puppetry styles performed by puppeteers Brian Harrison, Mandy Mitchell, Amy Sweeney and Tim Sweeney, with live music by Dolph Amick. The witty production is the Center for Puppetry Arts’ first mainstage Family Series show of the 2018-19 season, kicking off the 40th anniversary year.

“Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type is a great way to start summer off on the right foot,” said Center for Puppetry Arts Artistic Director Jon Ludwig. “Since the production is based on the award-winning book, it will remind young readers that reading over summer break is a fun and important hobby.”


The Center for Puppetry Arts is continuing its dedication to programming for patrons with Autism Spectrum Disorder on Sunday, June 24 with sensory-friendly modifications to the 1 p.m. performance as well as in the Museum and in the Create-A-Puppet Workshops™. The Center will also provide a quiet room, social stories, noise-reducing headphones and fidget toys for guests wishing to use those resources. For details, visit puppet.org/asd.

The girls and I escaped the summer rain, to see this funny, yet charming show. From the beginning opening song to the ending, we enjoyed every bit of this play!  Had us laughing, smiling, and cheering for more! All three of us have read the original classic book which is the reason why we had to see the live production.


I love how they put their own modern twist to the show, so kids now can relate to the characters, but still stayed true to the story.

Also, this puppet show was a bit different than the previous shows we seen at the center, this show shows the puppeteers handling the puppets.  At first, I thought it would be a distraction, but they went along perfectly with all the characters; honestly, they outshined the puppets!  Plus, it was quite neat seeing how they handle the movements of the puppets.

And wow, a typewriter!  Remember those?  My parents had one, and by the time I was born our typewriter was collecting dust since my dad purchased a computer, you know, the ones with the green screens.  Goodness!  I'm old!  But, just think of how far technology has come!  The center has a typewriter for kids to get up close and touch, and Michelle had all kinds of questions on how to use one.
