The Princess and the Pea, Y’all
by Lee Bryan, That Puppet Guy
This production uses beautifully costumed hand puppets and live vocal characterizations to poke a little Southern-fried fun at the classic Hans Christian Andersen story of a kingdom in search of a “real” princess. Twenty mattresses later, everyone in the kingdom learns not to “judge a book by its cover” as the new Princess is welcomed into the family. In the end, it’s “happily ever after, y’all” in this witty, one-of-a-kind adaptation.

by Wendy Bennett
This is not your average Cinderella. Aurora favorite Wendy Bennett puts her own spin on the beloved tale with puppets, costumes, props and plenty of audience participation. It’s a tale of transformations—pumpkins into coaches, mice into horses, shabby rags into a glistening ball gown and talented singer/actress Wendy into Cinderella. Games like “Show Me on Your Face” and “High/Low Voices” encourage children to exercise their imaginations. They will also cue parts of the story and play multiple roles in this make-believe fantasy.
