An Interactive Performance & Puppet Building

PRESENTED VIA ZOOM FOR INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES

This classic tale comes to life through an interactive performance led by puppeteer Jeffrey Zwartjes. Colorful hand puppets tell the story of a hen who finds a grain of wheat. She wants to harvest the wheat but none of the other barnyard animals will help her, so she decides to do it all herself. Lessons of hard work, responsibility, sharing, and helping your neighbor ring true in this timeless tale. Q & A with the puppeteer following the performance.

Please purchase your ticket at least one hour before the event begins and please purchase a ticket for each individual who will be viewing or participating in the program to ensure that everyone will be able to connect.

Program Length: 40 Minutes
