Puppet Showplace Theatre presents...
3rd Annual Fall Fairy Tale Festival
August 31-October 14
FALL FAIRY TALE FESTIVAL KICK OFF WEEKEND!
"Snow White & Other Tales"by Perry Alley Theatre
Sat & Sun, Aug 31 & Sept 1
Shows at 1pm & 3pm
About the show: Three fairy tales come to life as you’ve never seen them before in this imaginative production by the award-winning Perry Alley Theatre. See "Little Red Riding Hood" as it might have been performed in Ancient Rome, play pranks with the medieval puppet cast of “The Princess and the Pea,” and get a taste of Dad’s unusual sense of humor in an original dinner-table retelling of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”
Many different styles of puppetry: The show uses multiple styles of puppetry, including traditional glove puppetry, table top puppetry, and found object puppetry. This show is particularly recommended for those who are interested in creative variations on traditional puppetry performance. To prepare for the show, grown ups may want to explore different versions of fairytales with their children to see how an artist can modify the story.
Suggested story books: Can't wait for the show day to arrive? Check out these suggested books to get you into the fairy tale mood. These stories aren't your typical renditions, but unique and creative retellings! Read a fractured fairytale book like "The Stinky Cheese Man" or Compare Disney's "Snow White" to the Brother's Grimm edition or Pushkin's "The Tale of the Dead Princess and the Seven Knights"
