RENO PARK PUPPET SHOW
Till Eulenspiegel, the troupe's namesake, is celebrating his 10th birthday. His mother, Millie, gives him a mysterious box. He must unlock the secret of the box and find his path in life. In this humorous, fast-paced story, Till meets the Poly Brothers, Marco, Beanie, and Roly; Madame Babuschka and her performing pups, Boris and Natasha; and the clowns, Tinkle and Ding-A-Dong-Doo. He discovers his circus heritage and decides he must have a circus, too! The show was written and created by Monica Leo and Teri Jean Breitbach and is performed by puppeteers Justin Cornett-Olsson and Angela Polowy. The make-and-take workshop, planned and implemented by puppeteer/art educator Buffy Quintero, will precede and/or follow the show.
