Tales of the Moon

Posted by on Mar 20, 2017 in Children, Community, Theater

You will be over the moon when you bring your child to the puppet show, “Tales of the Moon,” created by the Twelves and Thirteens class at The Studio School.  After an in-depth study of puppetry and storytelling, the children selected classic stories about the moon, designed their puppets, props, and backdrops, and built an eight-foot-tall puppet theater. See these well-loved lunar tales brought to life and then join us for a trip to our outdoor yard to say hello to the moon through our telescope!
