Keep Your Adventures Big, and Your Heroes Tiny

Spring is flying by, and we're psyched to present  Every Hero Has A Story this weekend at Puppet Showplace Theater by Sparky's Puppets. This lively show tells the story of a series of unexpected little heroes—a mouse, a kitten, and a rabbit. These brave critters defy dragons, defeat goblins, and dare to travel into outer space! There's only 3 more shows this Spring until we start our Summer Puppet Adventures—as much as we're looking forward to summer, we'll sure miss our Tiny Heroes.

You never know who will save the day: it’s not always the biggest and strongest!  This show is a lively collection of tales about some surprising heroes.  Watch a tiny mouse rescue a huge lion.  Follow the adventures of a brave kitten who travels to the moon to solve some puzzling riddles. See how a clever rabbit outwits a pesky goblin.  And discover an unexpected character who proves to be “the greatest of all.” Kids will love the funny voices and very silly storytelling in this highly interactive show!

This show was created by Sparky’s Puppets to go with this year’s summer reading theme. Sparky’s Puppets, created by Kathleen “Sparky” Davis is a New England group that’s been around for 35 years! That’s almost as long as Puppet Showplace has been around! We are so excited to welcome Sparky’s Puppets back to the theater this week.

Kathleen “Sparky” Davis began dramatizing stories with hand puppets while working as a children's librarian. Since 1980, Sparky's Puppets have delighted children and family audiences at schools, libraries and festivals throughout New England. Every summer, Sparky creates a special show for the Rhode Island statewide public libraries' summer reading program.

Sparky loves to see children's reactions to their favorite stories brought to life with endearing puppet characters. She is known for her quick wit and hilarious sense of humor. A preschool child at a recent show was heard to say. "It was so funny I burst out laughing!"
