Spend your a­fternoon with The Ambassador of Joy and award-winning puppeteer, Joshua Holden. The Joshua Show: Episode 2 will cheer up even the grumpiest grump - just like Joshua’s right-hand man, Mr. Nicholas, who is planning an escape to outer space. With 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. The Joshua Show: Episode 2 will have audiences of all ages smiling from ear to ear with contagious joy!


“Mr­. Holden has dedicated his shows to lightening the mood of all in the theatre, puppets and humans alike.”

“With his quirky handcrafted puppets and vaudevillian style, performer Joshua Holden feels like a throwback to another era. The self-declared Ambassador of Joy’s new family show aims to be an anecdote to our troubled times by celebrating individuality and friendship.”

– The Mommy Poppins Blog

The Joshua Show believes that everyone has a superpower and that they can be wielded to spread joy to the people around us, and acts as a platform to educate, entertain, and delight family audiences. The revelation is that adults are captivated just as much (or more than) their kids!
