Pupetree Theater
The Ledgend of Sleepy Hollow
The PuppeTree Inc. presents  The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, a Shadow Puppet production of what happens when obsessive greed and fear rules someone's life as they do to the hapless "itinerant pedagogue," Ichabod Crane. Three professional puppeteers operate more than 150 shadow puppets in this 40-minute classic American tale. Neal Meglathery, radio voice of the Montshire Minute, narrates the story in Washington Irving's words. The sound tract is by Childsplay and the performers providing a "backstage" view of the production for a curtain call.
Sleepy Hollow Shadow Screen
The PuppeTree is a juried artist on the Vermont Arts Council Registry and this production has been seen by thousands of children in the Northeast.

For fifty years, a troupe of antique marionettes was confined to a dusty closet at Jan Hus Church, in the heart of New York's Czechoslovak neighborhood.  Discovered by Vít Ho?ejš, Czechoslovak storyteller, author, and puppeteer, the 24-inch century-old masterpieces of Czech puppet makers of the old, have since brought joy to thousands of spectators young and old on tours to 25 continental states, France, Hong Kong, Singapore...   Vít Ho?ejš and his marionettes tell favorite Czech stories he learned in his home town, Prague, from his father and grandmother: "Salt over Gold"  (A Princess who values her father "only" as much as salt, is banished, but returns to save her father when salt disappears), "The Stingy Tailor"  (A proud and stingy tailor is taught a lesson by the water spirit "Vodník") and "Kacha and the Devil"  (A shepherd outwits the devil who is pursued by a dance-loving shrew).

Woodland Wonders
Saturday January 26, 2008
Visit Ms. Greyson Bunny's Meadow.  She, Little Ted Hedgehog, and all of their friends are on the adventure of The Lost Thimble.  Where did it come from, who made it? There's magic about the meadow and it causes mysterious music and mis happenings.  This is a fun story for children 3 to 7 with sing a-long music. As the adventure unfolds our woodland friends also start to plant the seeds of good environmental behavior.


Inspired by the art of pop-up books, The Carrot Salesman is the original story of a rabbit trying to sell carrots to all the wrong animals. This show is filled with enough visual surprises to captivate even the youngest children while older kids learn to think critically about advertising. After all, a jellyfish needs a carrot about as much as it needs a bicycle.

Rudyard Kipling spent many years living in and writing about the African continent.  He wrote for both adults and children.  Like his most popular work, The Jungle Book, his Just So Stories were created for the enjoyment of young people.  Most of them are about the animal kingdom. They are fanciful tales about the way certain things came to be.  For example, they include: How the Elephant got its Trunk; How the Leopard got its Spots; How the Camel got its Hump; and How the Alphabet was Created.

Galapgos George
Based on the true story of "Lonesome George," this show tells the tale of a truly one-on-a-kind tortoise from the Galapagos Islands. Described by The Smithsonian as "an uplifting eco-fable," this engaging theatrical piece shares an important lesson about man's impact upon the environment.
