Rich in magical surprises, Tea at the Palace is a sumptuous retelling of two heartwarming folktales told in old Russia about justice, humanity and compassion.

A peasant is brought to the Tsar’s court and charged with treason simply for making tea in a samovar.  Meanwhile, the Tsar becomes smitten with a clever peasant girl when she arrives at court to request settlement of a dispute.  To thwart the budding friendship, the Tsar’s meddlesome servants resort to ridiculous antics, but are defeated at their own game when the Tsarina-to-be solves a series of riddles.

Staged in Puppetmongers’ signature style with zest, humour and delightful ingenuity, the show features amazing pop-up scenery and an inventive array of puppets based on antique dolls and toys ranging from 6 inches to 6 feet tall!

Created and performed by Ann Powell and David Powell, directed by Sharon Weisbaum, and with exuberant music created and recorded by David Anderson and Nuno Cristo that draws on Russian songs and folk instrumentation, it is a sensory feast with something for everyone: children aged 5 to 12 in particular, and their adults.


December 26th through 31st, performances at 1 p.m. daily 

Evening performances only on December 21 and 28 at 7 p.m.
