October 12 & 13, 2019         Once Upon a Fairy Tale - Little Red Riding Hood & The Shoemaker and the Elf
                                     presented by Great Lakes National Puppet Theater

"The Shoemaker and the Elf" is the story of a poor shoemaker and his wife who, through a simple act of kindness, are given a life changing gift. Hand crafted "Bunraku" type puppets and an original musical score further enhance the simple elegance of this lesson in kindness and sharing. "Little Red Riding Hood" is presented using rod puppets, mask, and "Muppet-type" hand puppets that children are sure to love. Join "Little Red", as she journeys to visit her sick grandmother. Along the way, she sees flowers, insects, a variety of animals, a friendly woodcutter and of course, the "not so" Big Bad Wolf!
