  • Li'l Red & the Pigs • June 2 - July 17

    What’s so bad about the Big Bad Wolf?  At last B.B. (Big Bad) Wolfe tells his side of the story, in rap, no less.  Has the notorious pork poacher and grandma impersonator gotten a bum rap, or is he truly deserving of his moniker?  You be the judge!  This is one of our funniest productions and includes lots of audience participation.

    Age Recommendation: 3 y.o. - Adult • Running Time: 40 Minutes

  • Peter and the Wolf • July 21 - August 28

    Staged with half life-size marionettes, Peter and the Wolf is one of the Puppet Co.’s best-loved stories. Over a million children and adults have seen this one-man show, based on Prokofiev’s popular tale of good versus evil, performed by Puppet Master Christopher Piper. An introduction to the instruments in the orchestra precedes this story of Peter and his animal friends, and their attempts to capture wily “Old Lupus.”

    Age Recommendation: 4 y.o. - Adult • Running Time: 40 Minutes
