This adaptation of the traditional tale will be a favorite for all ages. The mean and friendless Tully the troll guards a bridge that crosses to yummy beautiful green pastures. The hungry 3 Billy goat brothers would like to cross it and eat what is on the other side. Help them find a solution as we sing, dance and cheer on the three clever Billy goats as they try to go across the bridge and outsmart the Bulling troll. A mini- musical original by Penny’s Puppet Productions.
As seen on Sesame Street and the Sprout Channel, NYC’s Mario the “Maker” Magician is making his way to you in! More than just a performer, Mario is also an inventor who creates his own props. He is known for his dedication to the Maker Movement and STEM initiatives and his integration of DIY electronics and robotics into his performance.Regardless, he never sacrifices the old-school slapstick vibe that audiences so love. Despite his use of cutting edge technology, he presents in a very stylized, vaudeville-inspired, punk rock way. Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin for the modern age, with a mad inventor twist.
