Puppets on the Common

The Friends of the Public Garden with the support of the Boston Parks and Recreation Department is re-introducing a wonderful Boston tradition on the Common. It is an exciting new and free children’s program called Puppets on the Common that will take place at the Parkman Bandstand.

Puppet shows are a time-honored tradition on the Boston Common, since as early as 1883 puppeteers have entertained Boston’s youngsters.  It has been 16 years since the last puppet show and Friends of the Public Garden is happy to announce the return of these family friendly functions.

The performances will be:

  • Thursday August 18th at 2:30 PM – Rosalita and the Giant Bugs
  • Thursday August 25th at 2:30 PM – Aesop’s Fables

Children of all ages will be delighted by the artistry of Master puppeteer, Charlotte Dore, of Rosalita’s Puppets.

The Parkman Bandstand is located near the Boylston Street Subway Station off of Tremont Street, near the tennis courts. If the weather is fair, bring a blanket or chair; If the weather is rainy, up to 30 children can be accommodated under the Parkman dome on a first-come, first-served basis. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
