More about… “The Magic Soup & Other Tales” by Brad Shur

Saturday and Sunday | February 5 & 6 | 1PM & 3PM
Wednesday and Thursday | February 9 & 10 | 10:30AM

About the show: The Magic Soup presents stories taken from the rich Jewish folk tradition of Eastern Europe. In these six short tales, everyone is looking for something, whether it’s a bowl of soup, a bit of peace and quiet, or the perfect pair of shoes. It is those with wit, humor and imagination who have the best chance of finding their dreams.

Performed with mixed styles of puppetry, including rod, shadow and tabletop. This show is recommended for ages 4 and up.
