Center for Puppetry Arts has an end other summer treat, The Tortoise, The Hare and other Aesop’s Fables. The production is geared towards children ages 2 to 6, and I had the opportunity to take Devin to see it. This wasn’t Devin’s first time seeing a puppet show but this is the first time I’ve seen him enjoy it as much as he did. The production set was very colorful, and the interactive nature of the show really kept the children engaged. The children counted, sang and laughed along.
What I liked most about the show was that the dialogue was very simple, keeping the children’s attention and allowing them to easily follow along. At the end of the show the Puppeteers took a moment to explain to the audience, how they put the show together, and what type of puppetry was involved in the show.
Also after the show, included in the price of your show ticket, is a create-a-puppet workshop where children are provided all the supplies to make and decorate their very own puppet to take home.
