"Mythos," the tale of a young puppet who wonders about the troubles of our world and ends up with an ancient Greek poet leading him on a journey through four fantastic myths in order to learn what we can all do to make things better, plays Friday May 16 at 5:30 PM, Saturday May 17 at 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM, and Sunday May 18 at 2:00 PM.

Tickets are $18 ($15 for YMCA members), and can be purchased either by calling (866) 811-4111 or online at www.newyorkchildrenstheaterfestival.org.

But the Frugal Family Secret is that your ticket buys a lot more than merely entry into the theater and a one-hour show featuring three different styles of puppetry. Click on our photo gallery above to see what perks came with the Festival's previous production, "Cinderella, The Fairy God Mother's Tale," and what you can expect to get with "Mythos!"
