This show is a fast-paced introduction to puppetry with an easy to follow demonstration of puppet making using a plain styrofoam ball and other ordinary materials to create a technically complex character.
Children from the audience are invited on stage to manipulate some of the puppets. From a simple ball on a single finger, to a complex ten-string marionette, the show presents a broad overview of the world of puppetry.
The main feature of the program is a famous story written by Hans Christian Andersen, THE PRINCESS & THE PEA. Conventional and unconventional puppetry has been a hallmark of the Puppet Arts Theatre for many years now.
