Think poetry is, well, boring? Think again! This lively puppet show features timeless classics including The Three Little Kittens and Little Miss Muffet. Audiences also meet an entertaining circus worm (who meets an unfortunate fate) and a young man named Jonathan who ate way too much cake. Shadow puppets, hand puppets, rod puppets, and even a humanette will delight students as they discover the joy of poetic language.
We love performing for schools audiences! Barefoot Puppet Theatre's award-winning performances have thrilled audiences throughout the country and into Canada since 1997. Our touring programs feature imaginative scripts, innovative staging, original music, beautifully crafted puppets, and fun! Programs augment curriculum in many subject areas, and a Footnotes Learning Guide accompanies each show. Customized residency programs and workshops are able to blend science, literature, and/or writing with theatre for a complete hands-on learning experience. Our performers are always thrilled to share more about puppetry during post-show discussions and regularly give backstage tours to groups.
