Performing Arts- Puppetry
Illusion has triumphed. And so has Michael Graham, who gives life, at least momentarily, to a most improbable cast of characters. The New York Daily News The Spring Valley Puppet Theater has been performing for schools and libraries throughout New England for over 30 years. Each performance combines delightfully original scripts, appealing characters, beautifully hand-crafted hand and rod puppets, lighting, music and humor. The result is highly entertaining puppet theater. A highlight of each library program is an informative and exciting behind-the-scenes look at the technique and artistry used in puppet theater, including a demonstration of favorite characters. In most school assembly performances, the front curtain is removed and students are invited to explore the art of puppetry through an insightful and absorbing question and answer period. A wonderful educational experience! Productions include Jack and the Beanstalk (1994 UNIMA Award recipient.) The Three Wishes, The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, The Lazy Fox/ El Zorro Perezoso (bilingual,) Puss in Boots, A Holiday Fantasy. All shows play to a maximum audience of 350.
