Valentine's Day-ish Puppet Shows
Saturday, February 9
Sunday, February 10
 1:00 - 2:00PM

Enjoy a pre-Valentine's Day celebration at Book & Puppet! A weekend of improv puppet shows featuring beloved fairytales for the whole family.
Yippee Skippy Puppet Theater presents Fractured Fables, an improvisational puppet extravaganza with live music. Audience members draw familiar stories and songs from the hat for the puppets to perform. Somehow, the puppets don't get the story quite right, and the results are hilarious! With a little help from the children, it always works out in the end.

Geared for the enjoyment of children from infants to primary graders, all ages are welcome. Free of charge.
