Barefoot Puppet Theatre

Suitable PreK – 5th grade

Shares a story of small acts that create a world of difference. Narrated by a "nutty" little acorn, this performance takes the audience on a journey over time as they witness the regrowth of a forest after a devastating fire. Follow the life stories of creatures large and small — even beetles and grubs! Squirrels frolic, birds migrate, and seasons change. Told with hand puppets, shadow puppets, and rod puppets, the acorn’s tale unfolds visually as, little by little, a new forest is born.
