The Paper Moon Puppet Theatre presents classic Fairy Tales, Folk Tales and Fables from World Literature. Drawing from the original versions of many of these stories we strive to present to the imagination of children these timeless tales of fantasy, morality and humanity. The eloquent art of the marionette, as ancient as many stories themselves, is the perfect medium for presenting these classics to youngsters. Period scenery and costumes, the use of classical and contemporary music and the charming scale of the little puppets help us to provide a vivid format out of which the stories unfold. Before the main performance there is an interactive pre-show which gives children and adults alike a glimpse into the fascinating world of marionette manipulation. And after the performance the puppeteers take questions from the audience and explain some of the backstage mechanics to the children.
