  Sergei Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf" is the most exciting way  to introduce  
  children to classical music and puppetry.  This world-famous musical tale has   
  been performed often, but very rarely using the unique Czech black theatre   
  technique.  The complex but stunning style of this presentation allows complete  
  freedom of movement for the full-scale puppets who interact on stage  
  with a real-life narrator to create a feel of a big screen animated cartoon.  
  The seasonal finale with Tchaikovsky's favorite melodies from "Nutcracker" will  
  please everyone.  Marching penguins, dancing Russian bears, Snowmen,  
  Pulchinellas, and many more create a whirlwind of colors to bring laughter and  
  joy of the season to children's faces.  
  Pre-paid tickets are $6 per person; $8.00 at the box office   

  One free adult ticket with each group of ten children. Paying adults are $8.
