All voices and songs are performed live by puppeteers Brian Stabile, Lisa A. Haslbauer, and newcomer Ben Burris. They use Japanese Bunraku-style puppets and song to tell this humorous tale.
Both the adults and children in the audience were entertained by the nonstop action, beautiful and clever puppets, and catchy tunes.
The script was written by Jean Enticknap and Sue Ennis. Sue wrote the songs, and Jean directed this lively production.
The script is based loosely on the traditional fairytale, and cookies get eaten and much mischief is made. This puppet show is recommended for ages 3 and up.
The shows at Bellevue Youth Theatre are on December 18 and 19 at 2 and 4 p.m. The theater address is 16661 Northup Way in Bellevue.
Come see this fun puppet show while it’s still in town!
