There won’t be a shortage of laughs with the Marionette Melodrama at Denver’s Puppet Theater.
Channel your inner Fraulein Maria and enjoy the raucous story with two men, one good and one bad, and a female puppet who needs saving. Unfortunately, neither the Von Trapp children nor the lonely goat herder will be present, but that doesn’t mean you wont enjoy yourself!
Location: Denver Puppet Theater, Denver.

Crowe has been serving Denver Public Housing as a psychotherapist since 2008 and has various methods and practices that will benefit those looking to increase their mental and emotional health.
