Foolish Tales for Foolish Times-March Break in the Library

2 p.m. Tuesday March 12th at the Queen/Saulter Public Library in Leslieville

2 p.m. Wednesday March 13th at the Mimico Public Library in Etobicoke

Four classic tales of misadventure take the audience on a journey of venerable folk wisdom, in a celebration of our shared humanity.   See what happens to our characters when they try using yesterday’s solutions to solve today’s problems, letting a small mistake become an insurmountable mess, just not thinking things through – these tales have it all! This show is guaranteed to please the young and young-at-heart alike. Told with Puppetmongers’ trademark witty fashion, each of the stories is imaginatively performed with a different style of puppetry, from human-sized to hand puppet, table-top to kitchenware.

Directed by Sue Miner; devised, built and performed by Ann Powell and David Powell; music/soundscape created by Rick Sacks.
