About this Show: Diane weaves 3 engaging tales for younger children - “The Hungry Caterpillar”, about the development of a butterfly; “The Bear and the Beehive”, a story of strength in numbers; and “The Rabbit and the Moon”, a charming tale of friendship, sharing, and the rewards of helping someone in need. Diane’s trademark humor, music, lovely puppets and effects make this fun for the family.
“I wanted to thank you for the wonderful performance this week. All the children were awestruck and thoroughly entertained. The adult comments were equally favorable. The plays were aged appropriately for our young audience, and the business end of the experience was easily handled. All in all a very good experience for Bartlett School.”
-Judith LaPlante, Teacher, Josiah Bartlett Elementary School, Bartlett, NH
