Our story takes place in Candyland, where all the world’s sweets are made. I play Sweetie, the candy cooker. She makes lollipops and gumdrops and cookie icing.
All voices and songs are performed live by me and fellow puppeteers Brian Stabile and Ben Burris. We use a variety of puppet styles including Japanese Bunraku-style and rod puppets to tell and sing this take on the traditional tale.
The script and songs were written by Jean Enticknap and Sue Ennis. Jean also directed this lively production.
This show is recommended for ages 3 and up.
