Denver Puppet Theater – This kid-friendly theater has been around for more than 20 years and families love it. There are six productions that take place, all centered around the most common fairy and folk tales. Not only does everyone get to enjoy a cute puppet show, but kids also get to create their own puppet for free, which then participates it its own real show.
