Bremen Town Musicians Photos!

Our new show, The Bremen Town Musicians, opened today! We had two great audiences today, and we have six more performances this week if you'd like to come and see the show. Its a fun show that uses both shadow and rod puppets, and it's full of singing and dancing animals!

As a little preview, here are some pictures from the show.

Little Red Ridding Hood Show Pictures

Our Little Red Riding Hood performances went very well! It is a very fun show to perform, and our audiences really enjoyed it too. We have a few pictures taken during the show to share, so that if you missed it you can see what the puppets look like in action. We are also adding Little Red Riding Hood to our list of touring shows, so please contact us if you think you would like us to come perform at your location!

Wolf Costumes Sneak Peak

Pictures of the Beauty and the Beast puppets and costumes in action are coming soon, but I wanted to share this close up of the wolf heads from the construction process. The heads are masks that cover the performers entire head, and then the performer sees out of a mesh panel inside the wolf mouth.

Pied Piper Performance Pictures

These are a few photos from our performances of The Pied Piper at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. We had a blast performing, and the audiences really loved the show too. The show itself was half an hour, and then we did about 10 minutes of Q & A and demonstrating how the puppets work. The photographer said she was laughing too hard during the show to take clear pictures, but these came out very well.
Enjoy the peek at the show!
