Atlas Arts for Young Audiences
Beech Tree Puppets
The Hollow Stump
Seven very different animals seek shelter from the winter cold and snow in a large hollow stump. The cuddly, hand-crafted rod-puppets will enchant any child as the characteristics of each animal are revealed through a unique and descriptive poem and song. When the animals let newcomers enter and the space inside the stump grows tighter, these songs interweave. Adapted from the popular tale, The Mitten, this tale celebrates community, as the animals learn to share one space.
Best for ages: 3-9
All patrons age 1 and above must purchase a ticket to the performance.
Artist biography: Beech Tree Puppets
A few years ago we would have never thought that our experience in theater, storytelling, music and the visual arts would lead us to what is now Beech Tree Puppets LLC. We find that, when a puppet enters the stage, people can connect to the story directly. Puppets can break down barriers, cross cultural differences, and open people of all ages to new ideas and possibilities. You can talk about and teach almost any subject with a puppet! We are discovering that puppetry is a creative and expansive art form that engages and entertains, bringing a sense of wonder to a story or subject. Storytelling and puppetry also enliven the use of language, giving it nuance and meaning. beechtreepuppets.com
