Jim Henson Trivia Night
Center for Puppetry Arts
Did you grow up watching Sesame Street and loving the Muppets? Or maybe Fraggle Rock or The Dark Crystal were more to your liking. How much do you really know about the iconic, prolific American puppeteer Jim Henson? Put your Muppet knowledge to the test during our Jim Henson Trivia Night!
We are partnering with the Center for Puppetry Arts, the largest organization in the U.S. dedicated to the art form of puppetry, to offer this hilariously fun live webinar.
Here’s a little early trivia for you: Jim Henson and Kermit the Frog helped open the Center in 1978, and it is now home to the largest collection of Jim Henson puppets, props and costumes in the world, including puppets from Fraggle Rock, The Muppet Show and Sesame Street. Questions will highlight items from the Center's Henson artifact collection.

About the Center for Puppetry Arts
The Center for Puppetry Arts opened to the public on September 23, 1978, when Kermit the Frog and his creator Jim Henson cut the ceremonial ribbon. The first puppetry center in the United States, today it is the largest American organization solely dedicated to the art of puppet theater.
A leading voice in the field, the Center has hosted numerous conferences and festivals and has been recognized both nationally and internationally as an organization for excellence. The Ford Foundation recently selected the Center as one of only 28 national organizations to be recognized for success in management and innovative programs. The prestigious Kresge Foundation awarded the Center three different grants to support its capital campaigns. The Center was also the only theater group chosen by the 1996 Olympics to participate in all four years of its arts festival program.
