Rainbow Puppets: Creatures Great and Small
1303 West Third Street
There’s an acrobatic flea, a giant stegosaurus and practically everything in between in Rainbow Puppet Production’s latest musical, “Creatures Great and Small.”
Grandpa, a fixture in Rainbow shows starting with their first program, “Jack and the Beanstalk” in 1977, leads audience members on a musical review of animal songs and stories. During the course of the program, you’ll meet all sorts of marine life including singing fish, a Blue Crab and a Fiddler Crab. Farley the Fiddler Crab will lead the audience in a blue-grass styled hoe-down, Bert the Blue Heron will perform a high-stepping big band number. Other highlights include Mother Goose stories like “The Three Little Pig Opera” and a pair of singing dinosaurs.
The program is a musical review of animal songs written by David Messick, an award winning author who has created many touring children’s musicals including the long running “Amazing Adventures of Chessie the Manatee” Pirate Puppets in “A Pirate Party” and “Noah’s Floating Zoo.”
