An adventurous puppet show at the Biodome

Kids can learn about about animals that live in tropical rain forests through a live show

A mystery egg is discovered in a tropical forest, and no one knows where it came from or what is inside. This is the premise behind the Biodome’s What’s That Egg, a 20-minute puppet show that takes children on an adventure with Tamarin the monkey and a wily trickster who tries to solve the puzzle of what is in the egg.

The show is geared to children between the ages of 3 and 8 years old and is included in the entry fee to the Biodome. Ask for tickets upon arrival as places are limited. The children will recognize the animals in the show with the real ones they see in the habitat.

In 2011, author Valérie Galarneau was inspired to create the show by the animals of the Tropical Rainforest of the Americas at the Biodôme. She worked with nature interpreters to create a story that is both interesting and educational for children.

The show takes place every Thursday at 11 a.m. from Jan. 6 to Feb. 6.
