The Art of Baking Puppet Show
9:30 am - 10:30 am

Come join the Montgomery Museum as it introduces its new puppet show, The Art of Baking.  Children are engaged as they visit a bakery run by colorful animals from different parts of the world. The characters show children how it takes everyone working together to turn the bakery’s yummy treats into art.  Children are shown that the bakery’s cakes are created using color, shape, and line.

Various works of art from MMFA’s collection make an appearance during this exciting production.

The Art of Baking will be available to the Montgomery Public School System Kindergarteners in March 2014.  The show will also be available to the public for three days in April 2014, and is geared for three to six year olds.  The April shows are by reservation only and are free.  Please contact Jill Byrd at 334.240.4359 for more information or fill out the registration form shown on this page.

The Art of Baking Puppet Show was made possible through a generous grant from the Hearst Foundations.  Puppet show created and produced by Crosstitch Productions.
