Tricksters and Noodleheads come to PST!


Wed & Thurs | March 21 & 22 | 10:30am

Come to PST this week to watch 3 delightful stories about a rabbit, a goblin, and a woodcutter!


About the show: Meet some clever animals and foolish people in this medley of silly folktales. Watch Brer Rabbit sneak into the vegetable patch to steal a prize-winning pumpkin. Meet a pesky goblin who tries to outwit a hard-working gardener. And see what happens when a mysterious forest creature grants a poor woodcutter three magic wishes. The wishes come with a warning, but will the foolish woodcutter listen?

Hand puppets.
Recommended for ages 3 & up.
