What the moon saw

Puppetkabob's enchanting production What the Moon Saw is an artful adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's Thumbelina combined with The Ugly Duckling and several other lesser-known tales. The story brings together two misfit characters who discover the value of true friendship when they team up to outwit their meddlesome nocturnal adversaries. Under the watchful eye of the moon, 2 puppeteers and 1 musician bring characters to life on a multi-layered stage. Stumps and branches transform to reveal Miss Mousie's tree trunk hovel, Mr. Mole's dark lair, and the bouncy lily pads of Mr. Frog's pond.
