Whitcomb-May, Andrea Dig It! A Greta Garbage Puppet Show Nature- Environment,
Nature- Gardening,
Performing Arts- Puppetry
Greta peeks beneath the surface of dirt and asks- what is dirt and how is it made? Is there “good” dirt and “bad” dirt? Digging into nature’s recycling with worms, the puppets Jasmine & Tessy appear in a simple show about composting. Tessy is shocked & grossed out by the idea of manure & worm poop. Jasmine & the audience do their best to soothe her fears & assure her that worms are busy beneath the surface making new dirt. Worm poop, after all, makes the best soil. Butterfly, ladybug, & worm puppets have guest appearances as they eat, poop, & wander through the flowers. The audience gets to dig in at the finale when Greta opens her compost bin filled with real worms & shares the contents. Hand washing instruction included! Also starring Reduce, Reuse & Recycle. Puppet making workshops available.
