Sunday, October 1, 2017 at 11 AM & 2:30 PM
Peppi and the Pop-Up Dragon
A puppet show inside a giant 12-foot pop-up book with the audience creating the sounds and songs.
The sun rises and sets over a happy fishing village with bells that ring, babies who are rocked and boats that go out to sea. But the town is threatened by the pop-up dragon from the Blue Mountain. How will Peppi save the day?
With a special Dragon making mini-workshop after the show
“ The townspeople were alarmed. How would they survive? (talk about problem solving and cooperation!) They solved the problem, but you’d have to see this remarkable show to find out how. What a pleasurable experience. All I heard after this performance was “How charming!”
-Puppet Master, Puppetry Guild of Greater New York
“It succinctly reminded me of what a wealth of resources we have in children’s theatre….charming”
-Puppeteers of America Puppetry Journal
