Party Foul

Big parties can be total blasts. Until the riff-raff that no one knows starts acting up, that is. In the Great Arizona Puppet Theater’s The Princess, The Unicorn, and The Smelly Foot Troll, the royal daughter’s open invite birthday celebration attracts a certain unwanted guest on Thursday, August 15.

The shindig starts out with Princess Harriet and her pal Popsicle the Unicorn and gets real when a troll with unsightly and putridly odoriferous dogs decides he wants to ruin the fun. The winning tale is a returning hit that entertainingly reminds kids of all ages about the importance of the golden rule with spunky musical bursts and expertly manipulated marionettes .

The Princess, The Unicorn, and The Smelly Foot Troll parties up at 10 a.m. at The Great Arizona Puppet Theater, 302 West Latham Street. Admission is $7 for children 2 and older, $10 for adults, and free for kids under 2. Additional performances continue Wednesdays through Sundays until September 8. For showtimes and to make reservations, visit or call 602-262-2050.

Wednesdays-Fridays, 10 a.m.; Saturdays, 10 a.m. & 2 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: Aug. 14. Continues through Sept. 8, 2013
