The Lazy Fox versus The Armadillo! Only at PST.
THIS WEEK AT PST!
10:30am & 1pm
Watch two classic tales come to life when Spring Valley Puppet Theater comes to PST!
About the show: Can a very lazy Fox trick an Armadillo? Perhaps...but in this Spring
Valley Puppet Theater production of "The Lazy Fox," the Armadillo has a
few tricks up HIS sleeve! This program, based on an Argentine Folk Tale,
features enchanting hand puppet animals and a large rod puppet Sun. It
is combined with "A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing," adapted from the Aesop
fable. This popular story is enlivened with a colorful Mexican setting, a
humorous communication gap and a surprise ending where a helpless
little lamb proves that she is not so helpless after all!
Recommended for ages 5 & up.

has been performing since 1966 throughout New England, primarily for

festivals of the Puppeteers of America. He designs and makes his puppets, writes his own scripts, creates the scenery, and does a number of the voices.
Michael graduated from Western Connecticut State College, and studied with the
renowned puppeteer Albrecht Roser from Stuttgart, Germany, at the
University of Connecticut.
