New on Sky Princess: ‘Jim Henson’s Inspired Silliness’ puppet show

A new puppet show, ‘Jim Henson’s Inspired Silliness,’ will entertain audiences of all ages aboard the new Sky Princess and, coming in 2020, Enchanted Princess.

Acclaimed Broadway director

The show comes from the mind of the legendary puppeteer Jim Henson and is brought to life by The Jim Henson Co. and the acclaimed Broadway director John Tartaglia, a Tony Award nominee.

Exclusive to Princess Cruises, ‘Jim Henson’s Inspired Silliness’ recreates and reimagines several of Henson’s innovative works from early in his prolific career in a 30-minute performance.

New puppets from Jim Henson's Creature Shop

The Princess production show singers and dancers will bring to life the comedy, visuals, music and Henson style of puppetry. The show offers a colorful cast of new puppets from Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, including several newly designed characters, and includes a lighthearted video introduction by Henson’s son Brian Henson.

‘You can’t help but smile, laugh out loud and sing along to this original Henson production and feel connected to the performers and the audience during this show,’ said Denise Saviss, VP entertainment experience, Princess.
