Caps for Sale and Three Billy Goats Gruff
This is a large scale puppet portrayal of Esphyr Slobodkina's popular tale of the trials of the cap salesman who fell asleep under a tree and woke up without his wares and how he ends up retrieving them from the mischievous and playful monkeys.
Following right after, our Bunraku styled puppeteers and puppets perform the Norwegian based fairy tale The Three Billy Goats Gruff. Here we follow the three increasingly large billy-goats in their attempt to cross a bridge in defiance of an obnoxious ogre.
