Tampa Bay’s PuppetWorld Playhouse

There’s always something going on at Bits ‘N Pieces Theatre’s PuppetWorld™ Playhouse. It’s where marionettes, rod puppets, and glove puppets come together to bring classic children’s tales to life.

Puppet shows based on classic children’s literature are presented throughout the year at PuppetWorld. Up to 60 people can be accommodated in the enchanting PuppetWorld Playhouse, where there’s ALWAYS a puppet show for you. It’s an ideal venue for school field trips and large groups.
