Some puppet shows can be presented in Spanish or Mandarin.
Apartment for Rent
Inspired by the classic tale “Flat for Rent” by Leah Goldberg, this interactive presentation will have young audiences engaged in learning about what it means to be a good citizen and live in harmony with different-minded neighbors.
Based on the European folktale "Stone Soup," a traveling magician is tired of eating sandwiches. He would like some soup but doesn’t have the ingredients, only a stone.
Too Much Noise
Based on the classic Yiddish folktale titled "It Could Be Worse," this fun exploration of the tale helps a cranky man adapt to his surroundings and be grateful for what he has.
The Magic Brush
The Magic Brush is a classic Chinese folktale that tells the story of a young boy who acquires a brush, where everything he paints comes to life. This exciting work is presented with two artists and a giant pop-up book.
