She's back! Everyone’s favorite champion of healthy eating and active living returns to Center for Puppetry Arts for another odyssey of self-discovery this spring.

Set in a grocery store, Adventures of Little Noodle follows the title character as she makes her way home through the store after being swept away from her parents. Along the way, Little Noodle meets many quirky characters who all have opinions on how she should eat and live. This interactive adventure plays in the Downstairs Theater March 8 through April 1.

Perfect for families with children ages four and older, Adventures of Little Noodle focuses on four main tenets: make healthy eating choices, stay active, love yourself, and be respectful of others. Little Noodle solicits audience participation throughout the show, allowing several opportunities for kids to interact with the story and help guide the pint-sized pasta toward healthy choices. As the audience gets in on the healthful action, they travel along with Little Noodle as she learns messages of self-respect, healthy eating, and anti-bullying.

To create this fun story, Center for Puppetry Arts Artistic Director Jon Ludwig teamed up with a group of experts to promote healthy living and provide ideas to prevent one of the most prominent problems plaguing Georgia families – childhood obesity.


Using an innovative combination of projected animation and black light puppetry, Adventures of Little Noodle reinforces the experts’ messages in a manner which children find both fun and understandable. This original work is part of the Center’s Healthy Children Initiative and is sponsored by the Aetna Foundation.

Adventures of Little Noodle will be presented in the Downstairs Theater March 8 through April 1. Show times are as follows:

March 8-11
·         Tuesday-Friday: 10:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.

Single show tickets include museum admission as well as the Create-A-Puppet Workshop, where kids can make their own Little Noodle Rod Puppet.

Through its Healthy Children Initiative, the Center empowers its audiences with knowledge and hope concerning making healthy choices at any age. During the show’s opening weekend (March 10th and 11th), patrons can attend a free, interactive Health Fair where health-focused organizations such as C.H.O.I.C.E.S (the Center Helping Obesity in Children End Successfully) will be on hand to provide information, answer questions, lead activities, and encourage audiences to follow up what they have learned in Adventures of Little Noodle.
