The puppet festival is a first for San Antonio.

A few video previews are available here as well.  Some of the shows are sold out.  You and your children will be amazed and delighted! 

After the festival, we’d love to hear from you and your children or students!  Leave comments about the festival shows on our Comments page.

For more than 30 years, the Children’s Fine Arts Series has brought premier performing arts programs by acclaimed national and international professional touring companies to the young children of San Antonio and south Texas.

The Children’s Fine Arts Series is the only presenter of performing arts in San Antonio exclusively for young children, ages 3 to 10.

The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts will become the new home for the Children’s Fine Arts Series, beginning with our new season in the fall of 2014!  We are thrilled to be a resident company of the Tobin Center.  We join nine other organizations who will have a home at the Tobin.

We extend our most heartfelt gratitude to Las Casas Foundation and Arts Center Enterprises for the many years of generosity and care given to the Children’s Fine Arts Series. And a special thanks to Trinity University’s Laurie Auditorium which was our first home in 1982 and continued to be a favorite venue every Season. We were so fortunate to be a part of the Charline McCombs Empire Theatre and Laurie Auditorium for our 31 years. They helped make us who we are today.
