Please Note: The show is written for 3-4 actors, and will be double cast to allow two days of school performances per cast. Four Eric Carle Stories will be created by the actors as they narrate and bring the story to life with the puppets as an extension of the performer’s bodies. Actors will be clearly visible at all times and interact with other puppets and the audience. With 75 magical puppets, the director reserves the right to adjust character tracks and/or to cast additional actors.
