October 18th - November 3th



The Gem Center for the Arts 2417 Bank Drive Boise, Idaho 83705



If we charged what it costs us to build this production, we would have to charge $35 a ticket, however to keep tickets affordable, tickets are always pay-what-you-can with a $10 minimum. If you can afford $35, we ask that you pay that. If you can only afford $10, thats fine too! We understand everyones financial situation is different, and we want to make this production available to everyone.


HomeGrown Theatre Presents A (7th Annual) Horrific Puppet Affair

For a generation of kids raised on PeeWee's Playhouse, Dinosaurs and, of course, Sesame Street, puppets are practically a primal linka cord tying kids raised in the 1980s to that burst of creativity in the afterglow of punk rock, the advent of The Simpsons and MTV.

Although, puppets may be a childs' entree to the weirdness of real life, the playmakers at HomeGrown Theatre know this to be true: puppets arent just for kids. Enter the Horrific Puppet Affair, a cabaret of short horror puppetplays built to make your inner child squirm and scream. A punk-rock continuation of the Victorian art of Toy Theatre, the Horrific Puppet Affair tells strange stories through a wide variety of puppets, hand and rod, shadow-play, marionette, and other bizarre summations.

Wait List Policy:

Due to popular demand, we have created a brand new "Wait-List" policy! If you are buying tickets at the door and we are near capacity, we will add you to the Wait-List, and you'll be let in if advanced ticket holders do not show up at 8pm. If you purchase tickets in advance through Brown Paper Tickets, we will guarantee your spot UNTIL 8pm at which point we'll start letting in folks from the Wait-List. The best way to guarantee the best spot? Buy your tickets in advance and get to The Gem Center for the Arts early!!
