Barefoot Puppet Theatre tours presents: Little Red and the Gingerbread Man

On Wednesday, December 7th, Heidi Rugg and Barefoot Puppets present a puppet show that combines two well-loved, classic tales to create an original, fun-filled romp through fairy tales. Original music, snowy scenery, and everyone's favorite Big Bad Wolf make up this seasonal favorite for young audiences. This wonderful production is presented at the Hull Street Branch.

Barefoot Puppet Theatre tours award-winning programs to theatres, schools, libraries, children's museums and more. Families, educators, librarians, and theatre directors give enthusiastic reviews of our programs and invite them back again and again.

The shows feature contemporary adaptations of world folktales, classic tales with a twist, myths, and works based on true stories. The scripts, puppets, music and sets are all original. Knowing that children's shows need to be fun and interactive, so each script is carefully written to create a rhythm that balances the actions, words, and music of the production with the laughter and spontaneity of the children. Audiences love the innovative, hand-crafted puppets and beautifully built staging and scenery.

All of the shows are self-contained and can adapt to a variety of spaces. They travel with a professional sound system and supplemental lighting, though they are always thrilled to perform in spaces with full technical support. They work hard to create a theatrical environment wherever they perform.
