Just as the Muppets on Sesame Street taught you valuable lessons many moons ago, the Miskreant Puppets will learn you a thing or two -- but with them, the education goes beyond counting and letters, leaning toward the bawdy. Created by Henson Alternative, part of the one-and-only Jim Henson Company, these badly-behaved puppets present Stuffed and Unstrung, a sort of bizarro (up is down, left is right, nice is naughty) puppet comedy show. Brought to you by the letter “M,” for mature, this performance includes songs and skits, all building on audience feedback, keeping the puppeteers on their toes and ensuring each show is fresh. Bring your voice and coarse humor to the Touhill Performing Arts Center on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road; 314-516-4949 or www.touhill.org), where the chuckles ensue at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $27 to $65.
