Train Theater

Info

The Train Theater is situated within Liberty Bell Park (Gan Hapaamon) and it’s a gem for young kids.

The talented actors have created a variety of puppet shows and story theaters. They have a yearly calendar with weekly story theater, weekly plays involving puppets and even a walking play through the streets of Yemin Moshe.

Most plays are in HEBREW but can be enjoyed by young kids without a language barrier. Private shows can be done in English for groups reserved in advance.

The Train Theater has just announced a special series of English plays on Wednesdays.

During the summer the Train Theater sponsors a Puppet Festival in Jerusalem.

The Train Theater can bring their shows to you…for a special occasion or school event.
