Kazoom Puppet Theater

What it is: Kazoom is basically what its title indicates-a puppet theater.  You and your kids can head over to Raleigh, sit in an actual small theater, and enjoy an hour long puppet show.  We attended on Halloween and the performance consisted of jokes, rhymes, songs, and conversations lead by Ms. Poly, Ms. Ester, and Bartlet the puppet.  Apparently, typical shows involve more child participation in which the children get to go up on stage and act out parts in a particular story, but this was a special holiday edition.  Each puppet show ends with the reading of any mail brought in by kids and put in a special mailbox which is a nice personal touch to the show.  It is recommended for ages 2-7 and they also do birthday parties and host groups with reservations.

What we liked: We loved how personable Ms. Ester and Ms. Poly were.  They were great at interacting with the kids in the audience and making them laugh.  My son also loved the songs and watching the puppets dance. 

What we would change:  Since we went on a special day, we didn't get to see a typical puppet show.  Apparently, there are more puppets on a typical day, but I would have liked to see a few more puppets in the show.  The one that we saw involved a lot of activities led by Ms. Poly and Ms. Ester.  (Although, they were very entertaining themselves and my son enjoyed it immensely.)  I can't wait to go back and see their usual performance.
