We are so excited to have Crabgrass Puppet Theatre from Vermont joining us for Winter Puppetfest on December 27th and 28th. I will confess that I have seen this show four times; it is truly delightful! Fun, great puppetry, gorgeous set with vibrant colors -- everything I have come to expect from their work! We hope you will join us! (If the video below doesn't load, check it out on Vimeo.)
