Madcap Productions Puppet Theatre is a nonprofit, touring children's theatre company which combines giant puppets with actors to create a unique style of puppet theatre. Madcap introduces children to a whole new concept of puppetry, one that allows all the elements of theatre to be combined in an artistic and educational performance. The company offers in production both all-original scripts and fresh adaptations of tried-and-true tales.
Touring for the 2008-2009 season are:
-Once Upon a Clock: a story of two brave kids who get stuck in a magical clock and must finish such classical tales such as The Frog Prince and The Boy Who Cried Tiger -The Legend of Little Wolf The story of an brave boy who searches for his Native American roots but must defeat the terrifying Megissogwan, the giant who has terrified his nation for many years -Aesop's Classic Fables: a collection of Aesop's famous morality tales told with a colorful puppet flair! -
