The story is set to the music of Rossini and presented as a farce performed with the puppeteers in the full view of the audience, manipulating traditional marionettes.


This show is a fast-paced introduction to puppetry with an easy to follow demonstration of puppet making using a plain styrofoam ball and other ordinary materials to create a technically complex character.

Children from the audience are invited on stage to manipulate some of the puppets. From a simple ball on a single finger, to a complex ten-string marionette, the show presents a broad overview of the world of puppetry.

The main feature of the program is a famous story written by Hans Christian Andersen, THE PRINCESS & THE PEA.  Conventional and unconventional puppetry has been a hallmark of the Puppet Arts Theatre for many years now.
