Join us for an auspicious celebration of our new special exhibit Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal: World of Myth and Magic. The evening will include celebrity guests, a costume contest, heavy hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine bar, and a New Year’s Eve-style countdown to the Great Conjunction! Guests are encouraged to wear Dark Crystal-inspired costumes or fantasy masquerade attire and masks. Tickets are limited. Ticket information is below.
General admission tickets are $175 and include access to the Ball, heavy hors d'oeuvres, and admission to the Worlds of Puppetry Museum and the Dark Crystal special exhibit, which opens to the public on August 31, meaning you’ll be among the first to see it! Beer and wine will be for sale at the bar.

Halle Stanford, President of Television for The Jim Henson Company and Executive Producer for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance
Kirk Thatcher, judge of Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge, writer and director (Dinosaurs, Muppets Tonight, and more!)
