Fall Puppet Show 🎭🎬🐱🏍
November 9 @ 10:00 am - 7:00 pm
The Eulenspiegel Puppet Theatre Company will present three showings of “Uncle Rabbit’s Adventures” on Thursday, November 9, in the Salsbury Room at the MacNider Art Museum at 10 am, 1 pm, and 6 pm. All shows will be free and open to the public. Seating is first-come, first-served. Doors will open for seating 15 minutes before each show. This free show is made possible by a grant from the Bertha Stebens Charitable Foundation. Masks are optional.
Uncle Rabbit’s Adventures uses large, beautifully crafted hand puppets and lots of fun props to tell the story of a wealthy land-owning goat who doesnʼt want to share with his neighbors. Watch Tio Conejo and his wife Rosita tend to their chores, plant, harvest, and trick Señor Cabra (Mr. Goat) into sharing his agricultural wealth.
Created by Monica Leo and late Mexican partner puppeteer Eli Portugal, this show is performed by Leo and Stephanie Vallez. It resonates Mexican culture and is enhanced with live music. Age group: 4-94
Groups of 10 or more (schools, home school groups, daycare, etc.) should register in advance for the 10 am & 1 pm shows by calling 641-421-3666 or emailing [email protected]. Schools are eligible for a bus subsidy while funds last.
