TWO PERFORMANCES EACH DAY!
Wed, Thurs & Sat | July 6, 7 & 9 | 10:30am & 1pm
About this show: With beautiful puppets and their signature hilarious style, the award-winning Crabgrass Puppet Theatre presents for the first time at the Puppet Showplace Theatre this collection of tales from Africa, Asia and Europe that will inspire and enthrall children of all sizes. Can a tortoise win a tug of war with a mighty elephant? Can a tiny mouse help an enormous lion? Can a jackal outwit a terrifying tiger twice his size? Find out as Crabgrass Puppet Theatre travels around the globe to tell stories that show even the small and weak can have a big impact on the world. More about these stories:
Tug of War
From West Africa comes a story of arrogance and humility. The tortoise uses his intelligence to outsmart the elephant and the hippopotamus and show that he can pull his own weight – and theirs as well!
The Tiger, the Brahman and the Jackal
An Indian tale about trust and the importance of keeping your word. The clever jackal teaches the tiger a lesson in honesty and saves the Brahman’s life along the way.
The Lion and the Mouse
Aesop’s classic fable of friendship. The lion spares the mouse and in return the mouse saves the lion from the hunters. Even those small in stature can do great deeds.
