Every production in our repertoire has an original script which contains lots of humor and original songs by the puppeteers of the Drawbridge Puppet Theater. Our complete productions are approximately 45 minutes in length, and conclude with a demonstration of 'Puppetry Arts", or a backstage tour. Therefore, the entire show lasts about one hour.
Each Hand puppet show lasts approx. 15 minutes. You may choose two hand puppet show titles or combine one with a shadow puppet show (see list above)
These shows are most appropriate for children ages 2+
This delightful version of the classic tale is written entirely in verse. Mother pig sends her three sons out to seek their own success. However, two pigs build houses of straw and sticks and scoff at their older brother, who builds a brick house. But when the wolf comes around and blows their houses down, they scoff no more! Humorous songs throughout as well.
The audience is encouraged to guess what animal they see, then a different type of puppet will appear; maybe a hand puppet tiger, or a marionette bird or perhaps a very big dinosaur!
Very interactive, fun and
educational show for all ages.
