Come see In the Mirror- Three Tales from Asia puppet show on Saturday, August 20, 2011 at the Puppetry Arts Institute (11025 E Winner Road, Independence 64052).
A set of three tales from Japan and Turkey, these stories all feature atypical heroes. A favorite is the little old lady outsmarting two Oni (Japanese trolls) who imprison her in order to sample her delicious cooking. The show uses a clever stage that rises and folds out of a decorated box. It features rod puppets, paper puppets, masks, and a combination rod puppet/rod marionette.
Showtimes: 11:00am & 2:00pm
Cost of Admission: $5.00 per person (all ages)
Please call (816) 833-9777 for reservations.
