The Joshua Show at the Cabot Theater

The Joshua Show is great family entertainment at The Cabot Theater in Beverly Massachusetts

A modern day Mr. Rogers with hipster appeal, Joshua Holden and his puppet sidekick, Mr. Nicholas, are bringing their award-winning family production “The Joshua Show” to The Cabot! When Mr. Nichols makes an unnerving self-discovery that causes him to spiral down a path of loneliness and hopeless despair, it’s up to Joshua and his cast of characters, including Larry the Lint and the Wonderbook, to show his best friend the joy in being yourself. With live music, tap dancing, physical comedy and multiple styles of puppetry, this whimsical show is sure to bring out everyone’s joyful side.
