What a charming show! Missed the first 5 min of The Tortoise & the Hare, but that was just warm up in my opinion for the main event: The Ugly Duckling! Just adorable with plenty of humor, clever stagings (like the simple but fun pond scene where you can see both "above" and "below" water at the same time), and some "action" sequences for the little ones. Really awesome getting to see the puppeteers in their puppets/costumes at the end when they bring the lights up. Bring your kids, or a friend who's a kid (like me!). Only downsides (so minus 1 star): tickets weren't cheap, even w/the Goldstar discount, and the JCCSF charges another $8 for event parking. Consider yourself warned!
