About There’s a Nightmare in my Closet:
​This classic Tears of Joy production is performed with a variety of styles of puppets. The boy and the Nightmare are adaptations of Japanese bunraku puppets and the Jabberwocky is performed with three dimensional shadow puppets created from kitchen utensils which fuels the imagination! These stories are tied together by the theme of facing and overcoming our fears. The play addresses childhood fears in ways that will elicit both wonder and giggles.
Admission is FREE TO ALL, but you can support the Storytelling Guild by bringing a new or gently used children’s book to donate. These donations support the Guild’s Pass the Book Program, which every year gives 5,000 to 10,000 books to more than 25 agencies who work with children from newborns to older teens–agencies like Kids Unlimited, Head Start, Juvenile Detention, Community Health Centers, the Children’s Advocacy Center, Dunn House and others.
Tears of Joy Theatre is recognized as one of the nation’s outstanding puppet theatres, known internationally for its innovation and excellence. Each year the programs of the theatre serve over 200,000 children and adults. Tears of Joy Theatre has received a Washington State Governor’s Arts Award and a Young Audiences Sunburst Award for its “exemplary commitment to arts in education.” Four of the theatre’s productions have received American puppetry’s highest honor, The Citation of Excellence in the Art of Puppetry from UNIMA-USA.
