The show was great, with a very talented puppeteer. My only comment would be that the wolf's growling was a bit too loud and scared several of the younger tots. The music could have been a bit louder, too. Otherwise it was very enjoyable.
Quotes & Highlights
- “What brings the story to life is the wry sense of character that Piper imbues in each puppet he touches, along with enabling their realistic and signature movements for a magical treat that has won the company national acclaim.” --D.C. Theatre Scene
- “Piper is extraordinarily skilled at performing multiple characters in a solo act, lending each one a specific voice and unique mannerisms. This wide range is very impressive, and it makes him a joy to watch with every visit.” --MD Theatre Guide
