Anyone who has visited an MLML Open House knows that the puppet show is a longstanding tradition and major highlight for visitors of all ages.   After much patience and anticipation, the 2009 puppet show is now available for your viewing pleasure!

Follow Harry Spotter the scorpion fish, Ron the rockfish, and Hermione the Hermit crab on a Darwin-inspired search for their relatives with shared adaptations.  Their adventure takes them on a daring break-in to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, where they meet an array of colorful and musical coral reef inhabitants!

The show is divided into two parts – apologies for the poor lighting in the first 1:30 minutes of the show!

Part 1: Following in spirit of Darwin

Part 2: Journey to the coral reef

Make sure you don’t miss this year’s puppet show – join Dora the Exploring Sperm Whale on her journey to the deep sea!  Show times are:

Saturday, April 17th:  11 am, 1 pm, 2:30 pm, 4 pm

Sunday, April 18th: 11 am, 1 pm, 3 pm

We hope to see you there!

    I had the pleasure of attending your puppet show today and it was fantastic. You all did such a fabulous job and despite my 3yo daughter asking me a couple of times where Dora (The Explorer) was, she laughed and clapped her way through the entire show. Kudos.

    The entire Open House was such a wonderful event.
