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. Students will have Q & A with the puppeteer following the performance.
Program Length: 40 Minutes
