The Selfish Giant's Garden
Please note, this event has expired.
An unhappy giant learns he must share if he wants to have friends. Marionettes perform in this bright fairy tale by Oscar Wilde.
Bits ‘N Pieces’ musical “The Selfish Giant’s Garden” based on Oscar Wilde’s classic fairytale is presented with beautiful traditional Eastern-European turned-wood marionettes. The simple wooden surface is left so children can use their imagination. Wood grain swirls give each character distinct expression. The hair is made of rope, the eyes of shiny brads. The puppet children are round and smooth while the Giant is boxy and rough. The musical show contrasts selfishness and sharing.
Jerry Bickel presents a program that includes an Intro to Puppetry-10min, Performance-35min, and a Demo on Making Souvenir Rod Puppets (I leave supplies)-5min. The program can easily be seen by up to 120 young patrons at a time. I usually perform in the cafeteria, auditorium, or media center. I arrive 90 minutes before the performance to set up my theatre. I bring everything I need with me for the show.
