The Tortoise & The Hare
The Tortoise and the Hare
Best for Ages 4 +
Slow and steady wins the race in this classic tale about the over-confident hare and the patient turtle. This experience includes a puppetry workshop after the performance! Workshops include a material list in advance that will all be objects easily found in your home or classroom (such as construction paper, markers, crayons, toilet paper roll, etc). Participants will enjoy the easy step-by-step instruction and walk away with not only a puppet, but how to magically make that puppet come to life!
