Puppet Building Classes: Let’s have some FUN!!!
Friday June 23 6:30 - 9:30 pm (adult)
Saturday June 24 1:00 - 4:00 pm (family)
Sunday June 25 1:00 - 4:00 pm (family)

Come and make your own puppet. With our small class size, we help you make puppets that you will take home, display proudly, and actually use or give as a gift. Even big people have fun in our classes.

First, you choose your favorite abandoned, cleaned, and gently used stuffed animal from our stock, or recycle a (former) favorite from home.
Just like a rescue shelter for dogs or cats, we've got lots of lonely
(but lovely) animals in many sizes and colors eagerly awaiting adoption, but only one is just right for you or your child.

Then we help you or your child modify and remake the animal into a magical fantasy creation limited only by your imagination. We've got boxes full of outfits, sparkly stuff, accessories and fun things to make the magical transformation into the perfect companion.

Adult Class will be held: Friday June 23- 6:30-9:30 pm
Family Classes will be held:
Saturday June 24- 1-4 pm -- Sunday June 25- 1-4 pm
All this for ONLY $25.00 per student
Limit of SEVEN students per class - so reserve NOW!
Triangle Productions is bringing “Avenue Q” back to Portland.
OK, So What?

Because we built five of the puppets for the show -
That’s Why!!!

Winner of the TONY "TRIPLE CROWN" for BEST MUSICAL, BEST SCORE and BEST BOOK, AVENUE Q is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart. AVENUE Q is a laugh-out-loud musical that tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named PRINCETON who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. There, he meets KATE (the girl next door), ROD (the Republican), TREKKIE (the internet sexpert), LUCY THE SLUT (need we say more?), and other colorful types who help PRINCETON finally discover his purpose in life!

Instead of coming to an adult cabaret here at the museum in June or July, go see THIS production of “Avenue Q” instead. If you are already familiar with the show, we’re building Kate Monster and Lucy (2 versions of each) and Trekkie Monster, all in our usual over-the-top style. Where else will you see a genuine Bob Mackie gown or a real mink coat in a show like this. Why - even the broadway version can’t make that claim!
The show’s Web site ( advises: “It may not be appropriate for young children because ‘Avenue Q’ addresses issues like sex, drinking and surfing the Web for porn. It’s hard to say what exact age is right to see ‘Avenue Q’ — parents should use their discretion based on the maturity level of their children. But we promise you this — if you do bring your teenagers to ‘Avenue Q,’ they’ll think you’re really cool.”

Triangle Productions’ Sanctuary theatre space is at Sandy Plaza
(17th & Sandy Blvd. - the old Salvation Army building)
Now through July 1, 2017 (Thursday - Saturday each week)
Tickets: $15, $25, $35 (Closer seats = higher price)
