Castlemoon Theatre will bring to life Canadian author Mélanie Watt’s wonderful characters in a new puppetry play for preschool aged audiences. The audience will participate in what is supposed to be the story of a mouse. Unfortunately, it gets usurped by Chester, a cat who thinks he should be the star of the show
This workshop brings together music, visual arts and puppetry to create an inclusive experience for our very young audiences. The audience will play along with the performer until Chester discovers that creating stories is more fun when you work together.
The children make a puppet which they will use during the story. All puppet plays are mess free. Castlemoon Theatre uses a simple sticker-like system so there is virtually no mess and even the youngest members of our audiences can put together their own puppets and take them home at the end of the show.
