Placeholder Image

No one could ever image a small squirrel stealing a person’s underwear from a clothes line. But in the imaginative world of plays and pupperty, it happens.

“Squirrel Stole My Underpants,” is a silly adventure and perfect performance for toddlers and preschoolers that opens next week at the Center for Puppetry Arts.

In the story, Sylvie is sent to the backyard to hang up the laundry. The moment her back is turned, a squirrel runs off with her favorite piece of clothing. As Sylvie chases the critter, an entire world emerges from her laundry basket and curious characters show her the way.

The play will run from May 27 to June 8 at 1404 Spring St. NW, Atlanta. Showtimes are 10 a.m. and noon Tuesday through Friday; 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday; and 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Sunday.

It is recommended for ages 3 and older.

Tickets for patrons ages 2 and older are $9.25 for members and $16.50 for nonmembers. The price includes the performance, museum admission and the Create-A-Puppet Workshop or a to-go kit.
