The Joshua Show evokes the feeling of joy in audiences of all ages by teaching valuable lessons about celebrating our differences, finding joy in everyday life, and respecting honest feelings. It’s about friendship, confidence, and the value of being yourself. Mr. Nicholas, a sock puppet and Joshua’s soulmate, makes an unnerving self-discovery that causes him to spiral down a path of loneliness and hopeless despair. How do you cheer up when life gets you down? Find out in this whimsical production featuring multiple styles of puppetry, live music, physical comedy, and tap dancing!
