Actors interacting with puppets! Strange creatures and mystery beasts! Astonishing and funny! A unique event for the whole family!
Forced off the road by a treacherous thunderstorm, young Nancy Naysayer seeks shelter in a secluded Southern mansion. Nancy discovers the mansion is a museum called The Hall of Cryptids, run by its curator, Dr. Thylacine (a supposedly extinct Tasmanian wolf). He tells the skeptical Nancy amazing stories about mystery beasts like Bigfoot, modern dinosaurs, and lake monsters. All these creatures come to life with the magic of puppetry along with live actors. The Hall of Cryptids opens minds to the impossible and inspires imagination!
