Doors open at 7:00 pm; performance begins at 7:30 pm.. Our next Story Barn, Imagine That!, takes its theme from our upcoming exhibition Jim and Jane Henson: Creative Work, Creative Play (opens April 5, to October 8, 2017). Best known as creators of the Muppets, the Hensons' contributions to Sesame Street revolutionized early childhood education, and their visionary puppetry resulted in a global entertainment phenomenon. With seemingly limitless imaginations, Jane and Jim Henson worked in tandem to raised five young children in Greenwich from 1964–1971. They often blurred the lines between burgeoning careers and family life and happily gleaned inspiration from both. Mirroring the Hensons, their revolutionary cast of puppet characters also delightfully blurred—and often obliterated—the lines between "the work of learning" and play. Imagine that!
