Drink up PST's artist-in-residence Brad Shur's imaginative puppeteering of traditional Jewish tales!

About the show: Uncle Murray is coming over for dinner, but there's no food in sight! A young man's search for a family recipe ends up bringing folk tales to life...in his kitchen. Based on a collection of traditional Yiddish stories, "The Magic Soup" teaches that it is those with wit, humor and imagination who have the best chance of filling their bellies -- and fulfilling their dreams.

Performed with mixed styles of puppetry, including rod, shadow and tabletop.

Recommended for ages 4 and up.
