4054 Chicago Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55407, United States
Admission: $0.00

Z Puppets Rosenschnoz is a puppet theater located in Minneapolis who creates puppet productions with socially uplifting messages. Over the years, they have explored everything from coping with stress in children to the marvels of cell science to a comparison of the Exodus to the trail of tears. While Z Puppets Rosenschnoz may be best known for Monkey Mind Pirates - their puppet rock opera, they have also paired up with In the Heart of the Beast Puppet Theatre to create Cellula, a puppet show about cells and with The Bakken Trio to explore classical music through puppetry. They have also work with the City of Maplewood on the Kid City Project. Most recently, they have created Through the Narrows, a puppet show that explores the trail of tears by comparing it to the Exodus. Unlike many theaters, once produced, Z Puppets' productions are usually remain available to be booked for events.
