Punschi: The Adventures of Kasper
March 12-13 (Thurs-Fri) | 10:30 am March 14-15 (Sat-Sun) | 1:00 & 3:00 pm by Jana Zeller, Sandglass Theater Join the German hand puppet hero Kasper on two imaginative adventure stories that come to life on a whimsical puppet stage made out of a giant umbrella! When Kasper’s best friend, the endearing giant Augustine, wins an airplane in a sweepstakes, Kasper accidentally flies off! Luckily, Grandma and her clothesline come to the rescue. In the second story, Kasper’s efforts to go on a journey are flustered by a comical cow who steals his suitcase and sends Kasper and his friends on a rollicking chase. Audiences of all ages will delight in this interactive call-and-response show complete with musical interludes, comical banter in English and German, and appearances by the feisty clown named Tschokolino. Originally created by German-born puppeteer Ines Zeller Bass, Punschi is now proudly presented by Ines’ daughter Jana. Recommended for ages 4 and up.
