Nursery Rhymes and Tales
Puppeteer Peter Allen combines the talents of storytelling and puppetry
in this delightful show created especially for young audiences.
Performing in a traditional proscenium puppet stage, Peter uses three
different styles of puppetry to introduce children to the wonders of
puppet theatre. The puppet stage is equipped with lights and a sound
system. Musical accompaniment is prerecorded, but the puppet voices are
always performed live to ensure active communication with the audience.
Peter operates simple string puppets in full view of the audience as he
tells the story of a little duckling’s first experiences in The
Little Duckling Who Would Not Quack. Next, children will enjoy
reciting and singing along as brightly colored shadow puppets
illustrate their favorite nursery rhymes. The classic tale of The Three
Billy Goats Gruff, told with rod puppets and lots of audience
participation, brings this gentle show to a close.
