not just a show
Its PUPPET THEATER
Who can resist the magic of puppetry? The Spring Valley Puppet Theater
combines delightful original scripts, appealing characters, beautifully
hand-crafted puppets, lighting, music and humor, all within the art
of puppetry. The result is highly entertaining puppet theater.
"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
are drawn from fairy tales, folktales and fables and feature hand
and rod puppets. The audience is treated to a complete, theatrical
production, performed with great skill. These large-scale presentations
are so carefully choreographed, it belies the fact that one person
is creating all the magic.
A highlight of each production 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 puppetry through an insightful and absorbing question
and answer period. Students are fascinated by the process, as well
as enchanted by the production. A wonderful educational experience!
All shows play to a maximum audience of 350.
