Things to Know Before You Go
Unlike more-traditional forms of theater, WOW performances are nonverbal, so there is no language barrier.
WOW Black Light Theater is one of several theaters in Prague that put on black-light shows.
Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, so arrive early for the best seats.
Shows last just over an hour, with no intermission.
Tickets can be booked online.
How to Get There
The WOW Black Light Theater is in the Old Town (Staré Město) area of Prague, close to many other tourist attractions. Old Town streets can be hard to navigate, so give yourself plenty of time to find the theater to avoid being late. The nearest metro stations are Staroměstská and Hlavní Nádraží, both of which are still a walk away.
When to Get There
Performances are held several times a week, in the evenings. Check the calendar on the WOW Black Light Theater’s website for the most up-to-date schedule.
Puppet Theater in Prague
Another family-friendly theatrical option in Prague is puppet theater, and there are several around the city, most of which perform such traditional stories as Mozart’sThe Magic Flute. Painstakingly carved, painted, and clothed wooden puppets can also be found for sale around Prague. The best-quality items are true works of art and sell for several hundreds of dollars, although cheaper souvenir versions are also available.
