MLK Puppet Shows — Give ‘em a hand!

Puppet shows are available at Martin Luther King Junior National Historic Site (Atlanta, Georgia) on Tuesdays and Thursdays in January and Tuesdays only in February. While advance reservations for school groups are supposed to be made 30 days in advance for the 70 available seats at each show, I would imagine a homeschool family could sneak in on a date where there are a few seats remaining (after the local public schools filled most of the seats).¬† You won’t know unless you call or write!

[And… Visit¬†Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta for kids’ workshops!]
