The Center for Puppetry Arts announces a special event with author and illustrator Janell Cannon to celebrate the world premiere of the Center’s adaptation of Stellaluna. The performance opens on January 21 and runs through March 8.
On Saturday, January 25, guests are invited to a special 1 p.m. performance of Stellaluna. General Admission tickets to this performance will include a post-show Q&A with Janell Cannon and the Center for Puppetry Arts Artistic Director Jon Ludwig. This is a rare opportunity to hear directly from both artists about how the book Stellaluna is adapted from page to the puppet stage.
Guests can upgrade their experience with VIP or Ultra VIP level tickets. All VIP and Ultra VIP tickets include admission to the performance, Museum, and Create-A-Puppet Workshop™ plus one free copy of the book, Stellaluna, and an invitation to a book signing with Janell Cannon at noon, one hour prior to the 1 p.m. performance.
Those who prefer the Ultra VIP experience will receive all of the above plus access to a meet and greet with the author, Center’s Artistic Director and members of the cast of Stellaluna.
