    AUDIENCE RESPONSE

    • It was so great! It far surpassed my expectations! The production was wonderful and the tie in to the current state of our world brought tears to my eyes. The props really encouraged engagement and I loved how one could be reused as a craft. It encouraged a lot of creative puppet play with my kids. It was also clear that early learning topics were embedded in the play. Our family loved watching. Thank you to everyone who was involved! The time and care you spent preparing this was evident!
    • Our three year old was enthralled by the performance! He's an active kiddo who rarely sits still for even a five-minute video, but he watched all the way to the end and has requested it several times since! We'll definitely be checking out future shows.
