3 Summer Shows to Bring Out the Animal in You

Make Your Own Mini Theatre and Put on an Aesop’s Fable Puppet Show!
Mother Goose comes in Live Zoom and/or Video via Vimeo Link. Darling animal puppets, rhymes, tunes, and movement for all. Sweet and gently personal

Choose from these three specially tailored programs about animals, craft and see the show guide for this theme. You can get any of my programs–virtually for now unless we hear it’s safe. Call and ask.

1) Animals! Animals! It’s a crowd-pleaser classic show, with folktales, tunes and interactive fun–even on Zoom or in a Video…You can dub it “Meowls & Growls” should you prefer. 30 years’ of showtime favorites includes the “Alligator Stomp.” Do it at home!

2) New! Take & Make Your Own Aesop’s Animal Fables 3D Mini Puppet Theatre! Wow–

This is so cool! I send you small boxes (shipped flat, a cinch to assemble by families) and supplies* to make it fun and easy for your patrons to make a beautiful and clever 3D mini puppet theater. The kits contain directions, characters and scene to cut and color, fabric for the marquee and curtains, sparkling gold pom poms for the footlights, scripts and tales. Kids will love making these charming theatres and putting on their own animal fables puppet shows from dear Aesop, the Greek slave whom some say gained his freedom through his wonderful stories. Families will love the hours of fun in this reusable theatre. Fabrics and some elements vary according to what’s available, but nary in fun.

OR  Mother Goose! Animal puppets help with the rhymes, tunes, movement, laughs for the littles and the big folks who love them. Kids laugh in half over the Cow (Hey Diddle Diddle) who quacks, Hickory Dickory the finger puppet mouse and more. Mother Goose is a classic. How can you go wrong with popularity that’s lasted hundreds of years?
