Week 5: Pumpernickel Puppets
Featuring “The Three Billy Goats Gruff” and characters created by John McDonough.
June 21 (Sunday) | 3:00 pm
FREE (Donations welcome, suggested $10-$20 per household)
Join celebrated puppeteer John McDonough for "The Three Billy Goats Gruff," a fun and interactive fairy tale adaptation of the familiar story. The quick-witted billy goats outsmart a troll, but the troll isn’t really mean – he’s just green, has a snaggletooth, and lives under a bridge. This tale is told with colorful, friendly hand puppet characters and features lots of audience interaction. After the show, learn about what inspires John’s work and how he makes his characters come to life.
