Join us for a puppet show. Wee The People, the social justice project for kids, has adapted Innosanto Nagara's autobiographical picture book, My Night in the Planetarium, in partnership with Puppet Showplace Theatre. This story of political repression and resistance in Indonesia transforms into a giant pop-up book puppetry performance filled with visual surprises, fascinating discoveries, and humanity as seen through the eyes of a curious child. Truth and humor show how art can affect social change to make the world fairer. After the show, stay and make your own pop-up stories. Best for ages 5 and up. Suggested Donation: $5
