The Wonderful World of Puppets

Throughout history, puppets have been used to tell the historical, religious, and cultural stories of various civilizations. Join The Puppet Place for an entertaining and educational show that demonstrates the four major puppet groups (hand, shadow, rod, and string or marionettes) by using each in a story from its culture of origin. Shadow puppets from China, dancing marionettes from Egypt and Mexico, and rod puppets from Eastern Europe appear in a Punch and Judy hand puppet show from England.

I've had "The Wonderful World of Puppets" before and the storytelling is always excellent. The students thoroughly enjoyed the show and it was well suited for the K-2 audience that attended.
