Welcome the Year of the Monkey with a story about the Monkey King himself. In this episode of the epic Journey to the West Monkey is thrilled to have a job in the heavens. But when he is left out of the Jade Emperor’s banquet, he flies off to make mischief in the banquet hall and in Lao-tse’s studio. Margaret Moody performs the story with acrobatic Taiwanese puppets. Stay after the show to dance with a lucky lion and try out traditional hand puppets! Best for ages 4 and up.
If you’d like to reserve tickets, email Margaret at [email protected] or call (781)643-1228.
The Trolls and the Tree: an Interactive Puppet Show will open on June 4, 2022 and be performed again in July and September! We welcome people to come into our fairy garden and be a friend to the plants, animals and fairies that live there. Best for children ages 5 to 10 and their families. Outdoors.
The trolls want to take good care of the fairies’ garden, but they also want a LOT of stuff. When there’s not enough space for their breakfast nook, what should they keep — their deluxe toaster or the fairies’ cherished tree?
Nature-based educator Ann Wynne, stringed instrument virtuoso Peter Lehman and I have enjoyed building this show together, rehearsal by rehearsal.
