Children’s Puppet Show – Tangle of Tales
Tangle of Tales

Enjoy a taste of the familiar and a touch of the new with Grey Seal Puppets, recipients of three Citations of Excellence from UNIMA-USA, the President’s Award from the Puppeteers of America, and the Award for Leadership in Theatre from the NC Theatre Conference. Three favorite folk tales from around the world come to life: The Frog Prince from Germany teaches the importance of a promise; Three Billy Goats Gruff from Scandinavia warns us against gluttony; and The Three Little Pigs from England is all about doing the job right. Each story is told in a different style using a variety of puppets. Along with these familiar tales of childhood, Grey Seal Puppets offers a whole menagerie of zany characters. A skinny ant dances a lively jig, “block heads” learn how to get around, and the zaniest creatures of all, the “wobblies,” open the show with an extraordinary ballet choreographed to Kablevsky’s The Comedian’s Suite. And there’s more! It’s puppet fun for everyone!
