Photo Essay: Puppets On a Spring

Once I started going to the Bob Baker Marionette Theater at Halloweentime, I couldn't stop.

Each new show now marks a new holiday or season to be celebrated.

Following the Halloween Hoop-de-Doo and The Nutcracker is their spring show, Something to Crow About, which is kind of their rendition of Hee-Haw, replete with overall-sporting puppeteers...



...talking goats...



...dancing daisies...





...and some good old-fashioned...



...down-home fun.



There is a cast of mostly animal characters who sing and dance...



...including a fox and a chick who mutually romance...



...as a creative rabbit named Pierre totes a palette of flavors...



...that he paints on unsuspecting noses.



The highlight of the show was when Pierre sat on my lap and painted a strawberry daiquiri on my face.



An umbrella-wielding duck seeks shelter from spring showers...



...while willows wriggle and wobble to the beat.



Scarecrows bounce and flounce...



....protecting the vegetable garden that gather for the finale.



Now that Spring is evident, and Easter is on its way, I was ready to see this show, but now, in anticipation of summer, I wonder - what will be next?

Regardless of what it is, I'm pretty sure I'll have to see it.
