Beech Tree Puppets Present “The Giant Turnip”

September 22, 2018 @ 9:30 am

Ole and Ingrid Hass of Beech Tree Puppets present “The Giant Turnip.” This whimsical and humorous telling of this Ukrainian folk tale celebrates community and caring for the earth. After lovingly preparing and tending their garden, an old man and his wife grow a vegetable so large that they can’t pull it up by themselves. The story unfolds with singing and hand-crafted rod-puppets. Shadow puppets reveal what happens under the ground, including a jolly and helpful root gnome. WHEN:  Saturday, September 22  … Performances are at 9:30am and 11:00am. WHERE:  National Theatre DC, 1321 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20004> FOR MORE INFORMATION: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/beech-tree-puppets-the-giant-turnip-tickets-49434470833?aff=ebdssbdestsearch#tickets
