Subject: [Puptcrit] Crabgrass Puppet Theatre


It was my great pleasure in January to see CRABGRASS PUPPET THEATRE perform
The Day It Snowed Tortillas at Sandglass Theatre in Putney, VT. The
performance was engaging, colorful, bright and delightful. 

 

But what I loved most about this show was the reaction of the audience...
children in the rows in front of me screamed with delight! I mean they were
having so much fun with the story and puppets they could not contain their
joy! 

 

I believe entertaining young children takes a lot of work and craft. Younger
children will not sit still to be "preached at" or hit over the head with
theme. They must be entertained (which is at the core of good theatre) and I
congratulate Crabgrass for giving the children a wonderful experience and
helping to develop an audience for all of us!
