See the Weather People open up the floodgates to the mysteries of Mother Nature with cool facts about rain, snow, twisters, sunshine, and other weather phenomena in this unpredictable musical review!
Tommy the Talking Thermometer trades secrets about temperature, the Sun explains how he sets the weather in motion, and cloud-lounging angels share the glory of the sky.
More than 25 hand puppets, rod puppets, marionettes, shadow puppets, and body puppets bring “en-lightening” fun to this colorful, educational spectacle!
Dinosaurs ROAR! Do you want to be a dinosaur? Francine, a frustrated young songbird, sure does!
When Francine’s mother drags down the old family album and opens the magical heirloom, the two go back in time and discover the pre-historical steps of the gentle giants, primeval predators and leaping lizards that once stalked the earth.
Fascinating dino-facts are revealed as erupting volcanoes, catchy tunes, and life-like hand, rod and body puppets make this colossal creation come to life!
The Body Detective
Eye spy…a body! A living, breathing body has been found! But who’s responsible?!
Detective Sam Flat Foot sleuths his way through Bodytown in this spine-tingling, nail-biting, hip-swinging musical whodunit. He swaps sweet talk with the gorgeous torch singer Lips; bones up on the body’s framework with a dancing skeleton; and catches a capillary for a wild taxi ride.
Dramatic lighting, film-noir tunes, and a shadowy cityscape set the stage for this spectacular suspense told with hand-and-rod, string, and shadow puppets.
