Venue: Samueli Theater Tickets start at $20.00


“With his quirky handcrafted puppets and vaudevillian style, performer Joshua Holden feels like a throwback to another era.” - Mommy Poppins

Life got you down? Spend an hour with award-winning puppeteer, Joshua Holden. The Joshua Show: Episode 2 thrills audiences of all ages by celebrating individuality in ourselves and others, helping to combat the doldrums of everyday life. Joshua’s right-hand man and grumpiest of grumps, Mr. Nicholas, is planning an escape to outer space. With live music, singing, tap dancing, and a cast of zany puppets, Joshua sets out to convince Mr. Nicholas to stay, and in doing so, he brings glee to the masses. This whimsical production about friendship, confidence, and the value of being yourself is sure to turn even the sulkiest sourpuss into an "Ambassador of Joy."

Everyone can be an Ambassador of Joy at our Joshua Show pre-show activities! We are partnering with the Orangewood Foundation in Santa Ana to bring joy to current and former foster youth by decorating totes and filling them with hygiene items. Our Ambassadors will also be able to make their own greeting card to send to children in the hospital through the organization Cards for Hospitalized Kids. Finally, everyone will be able to share their joy in our Joshua Show themed photo op. Bring your smile and sharing spirit to Samueli Lobby an hour before the performance to earn your Ambassadorship!

We look forward to seeing you!
