Puppet shows are great fun for kids of all ages.
This summer, in western Massachusetts, a production of "The Lion's Whiskers" by the Catskill Puppet Theater, turned out to be a highlight.
Adapted from an Ethiopian folk tale, the show engaged its audience of primarily youngsters.
The puppets were bigger than usual and very creative.
The show took place in the jungle of Africa so there were large and unique animal puppets, like a camel and giraffes, to delight the audience.
John Potocnik and his wife, Carol Mandigo, are co-founders of the theater which has been doing shows for the past 38 years.
In "The Lion's Whiskers," a lonely lady named "Minya," marries a widowed man who has a young son.
Unfortunately, the boy is influenced to dislike his father's new wife but, by show's end, comes to love her.
The theater company prides itself on offering art, music, drama and American folk culture in its unique and varied shows.
What a wonderful experience it turned out to be for all!
