A LIVE, INTERACTIVE PUPPET SHOW! Little Red Hen & the Grain of Wheat

from Center for Puppetry Arts

Program image

This classic tale comes to life through an interactive performance led by puppeteer Jeffrey Zwartjes. Colorful hand puppets tell the story of a hen who finds a grain of wheat. She wants to harvest the wheat but none of the other barnyard animals will help her, so she decides to do it all herself. Will Little Red Hen share her bounty with the other animals? Your students decide! Lessons of hard work, responsibility, sharing, and helping your neighbor ring true in this timeless tale. Students will have Q & A with the puppeteer following the performance.

The Center for Puppetry Arts opened to the public on September 23, 1978, when Kermit the Frog and his creator Jim Henson cut the ceremonial ribbon. The first puppetry center in the United States, today it is the largest American organization solely dedicated to the art of puppet theater.

The Center has been a leading voice in the field, and has hosted numerous conferences and festivals. In addition, the Center has been recognized both nationally and internationally as an organization for excellence.
