Carolina Puppet Theatre Returns to the Renaissance Centre May 4

Carolina Puppet Theatre, longtime entertainers at the former Kazoom Children’s Theatre in Raleigh, return to the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre, 405 S. Brooks St., on Wednesday, May 4, at 11 a.m.

Carolina Puppet Theatre has been entertaining families for over 20 years with fast-paced, interactive performances full of mayhem. Ms. Poly and Ms. Ester, the wacky Garbardine Sisters and the star of the show, Bartlet, use story-telling, music and puppetry to make the shows a delightful experience for young children.

Using a variety of puppet styles, the characters come to life with engaging personalities and close interaction with the audience. During the storytelling segment of each show, children are selected from the audience to be the stars.

These shows are geared to children ages 3-7. Tickets are $5 per person (plus tax) and can be purchased in advance on the Renaissance Centre website at or at the Renaissance Centre Box Office, 405 S. Brooks St. On the day of the event, tickets may also be purchased at the door.

Future Carolina Puppet Theatre performances are scheduled at the Renaissance Centre on May 18, June 8, and June 22. For more information, visit or call 919-435-9560.
