There is trouble on the African plain and Mother Rabbit is not pleased. Leopard is always bullying and frightening smaller animals. Is there anything the other animals can do? Armed with a plan, Mother Rabbit turns the tables on Leopard-- with the help of her son and the jungle’s two largest beasts, Elephant and Rhinoceros. This anti-bullying story was inspired by an African tale from Malawi. The audience learns, along with Leopard, that cooperation works better than intimidation.
Recommended for ages 4 and up.

About the Series
As our event season comes to a close, the Somerville Arts Council takes you on one last adventure: “Puppet Palooza 2019: Tales from Around the World!” Stories have always been a connective thread that brings cultures together. For this series, Tales from Around the World, our featured performers bring those stories to life. Audiences are whisked away on journeys to far-away lands featuring global tales from Africa, Persia, Indonesia, and many more. So, grab your passport and prepare for thrilling escapes and unexpected surprises along the way.
Puppet Palooza is thrilled to bring the art of puppetry to East Somerville. Join us for a five-part puppetry extravaganza, showcasing local, national, and international performing companies. Great for kids and adults and 100% free. Thanks to our collaborators, Connexion, and East Somerville Main Streets.
