The Stinky Cheese Man - Now Playing at the Center for Puppetry Arts!

RUN, RUN, RUN to The Stinky Cheese Man at the Center for Puppetry Arts
These fairy tale spoofs will amuse kids and adults, alike!

WHAT:     The Stinky Cheese Man by Paul Mesner Puppets of Kansas City, MO
Based on the wildly popular book by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith, Jack (of Beanstalk fame) guides us through this humorous collection of twisted fairy tale parodies, including Chicken Licken, Cinderumpelstiltskin, a duckling who really is just ugly, and a man made of stinky cheese instead of gingerbread!  

An audience favorite, Paul Mesner Puppets has previously performed several popular productions at the Center, including “The Dinosaur Show” and “The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs by A. Wolf.”  To learn more about the company, click here.
