Carnival of the Animals
For its first bilingual (English/Spanish) production ever, the Puppet Co. presents Bob Brown Puppets’ “Carnival of the Animals.” This “Grand Zoological Fantasy” uses bunraku-style puppets, following the musical suite of Camille Saint-Saens. A young boy, giving up on his piano practice, crawls into bed and falls asleep, clutching his stuffed lion. “Carnival of the Animals” plays from his radio, and the toys in his room magically come to life as the various themes are played. Runs Sept. 21 – Oct. 7. Show times: Fridays at 10 & 11:30 a.m.; Saturdays & Sundays at 11:30 a.m. & 1 p.m. Recommended: PreK – Grade 4. Running time: 40 minutes.
Located across the Spanish Ballroom at the Puppet co. Playhouse.
