All Puppet Players Present The Most Pretentious Show Ever Written!

Friday, February 1, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - Saturday, February 23, 2019 @ 8:00 pm MST

Two figures meet on a lonely stretch of road in the middle of nowhere. Nothing is certain, nothing can be done, and nothing really happens. But if you think these are just world-weary men waiting for some chap named Godot, you might feel like someone’s been pulling your strings. The All Puppet Players pull out all of the stops to bring their first original production to the stage. This offbeat, puppet-centric satire takes absurdist theater to new heights at Playhouse on the Park in Phoenix. It’s the play Beckett might’ve written had he taken a wrong turn onto Sesame Street.

“It’s a love letter to Mr. Henson, however it’s not. It’s a cautionary tale, yet it’s not. It’s a comedy, until it isn’t. If you love this show you probably got the joke… or you didn’t,” says writer, director Shaun Michael McNamara. Confused? You sure as hell better be!

This nonsensical-tomfoolery abandons logical construction, rational thought, and intellectually usable arguments to prove that irrationality, self-awareness, and puppets are a lethal combination when someone tries to assign meaning to them.

Waiting For Henson
February 1st- 23rd, 2019
Playhouse On The Park at The Central Arts Plaza
1850 N. Central Avenue

Phoenix, AZ 85004

WARNING! All Puppet Players shows are for mature audiences with exceedingly immature tastes (although tasting is not recommended due to risk of fur balls). They contain strong adult language and situations. No one under 17 years of age will be permitted. Puppets can be unpredictable—so if you are of a sensitive nature or are easily offended—puppets don’t care.

To convert your money into tickets, call 602-254-2151 or for more information, visit the ALL PUPPET PLAYERS web site at:

The company has garnered numerous awards and recognitions for their productions and live events.
