The Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre has proudly participated in OHNY Weekend for several years. A unique structure situated in Central Park since 1877, the Theatre offers architectural charm as well as marionette performances for families from all over New York City and those visiting from elsewhere. This OHNY Weekend, the Swedish Cottage staff will be opening the Cottage to the public from 10am-4pm, as well as offering two guided presentations of the space at 11am and 1pm and a performance at 3pm. Come see original marionette puppets, learn what it's like to be a professional puppeteer, and experience this architectural gem in the heart of Central Park.

Generous private support for the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre is provided by the Connelly Foundation in memory of Judith Connelly Delouvrier, The Weininger Foundation, Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation, and The Puppet Slam Network. In partnership with NYC Parks and Historic House Trust.

Masks are encouraged.

Guided presentations of the space will be made at 11:00am and 1:00pm, and at 3:00 pm there will be a free first-come-first served performance: Puppet Time at the Swedish Cottage: A Family-Friendly Puppet Slam, featuring four styles of puppetry – shadow puppets, tabletop puppets, blacklight puppets and marionettes.

Guided presentations of the space will be made at 11:00am and 1:00pm, and at 3:00 pm there will be a free first-come-first served performance: the Swedish Cottage original production Wake Up, Daisy!
