|August 16, 2014Mr. Bugaboo’s Bugazoo
by Barry Stewart Mann
This show is full of stories, poems, and songs exploring bugs in children’s literature, including “The Old Woman Who Swallowed a Fly,” a participatory hand puppet telling of “The Ant and the Grasshopper,” and the goings-on in Eric Carle’s Garden when the Lonely Firefly decides to have a party. With plenty of audience involvement, this show is perfect for emerging readers and established bug-lovers—often one and the same!
|August 23, 2014The Giant, the Beanstalk & Jack
by Lee Bryan, That Puppet Guy
Based on the timeless tale of a lazy boy named Jack who outwits the Giant, gets the gold and saves the farm… this innovative one-man, mini-musical combines original songs with rod puppets, hand puppets, and shadow puppets all in one show! Here’s what the Atlanta Journal-Constitution says about this production, ”Bryan’s a playful mimic, a shameless punster and a silly lyricist who’s not afraid to take literary liberties in the name of a good rhyme.”
|August 30, 2014A Musical Tour Through Latin America
by Havana Son
Grab your sombrero and a chimichanga or two for the road as Rene and Llilian lead a whirlwind adventure through Latin America. Their musical itinerary includes stops in Cuba, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Colombia, Panama, and Puerto Rico, as students sample each country’s unique sounds and rhythms. It’s a fiesta grande where the irresistible son Cubano (Cuban sound) will have everyone dancing salsa, merengue and macarena. ¡Ay, caramba!
