Animal Amigos at the Center for Puppetry Arts

Header image

Three Mexican folktales come to life September 4-15 when Mesner Puppet Theater of Kansas City, Missouri, brings their bilingual production Animal Amigos to the Center for Puppetry Arts
Families are invited to gather ‘round the Tree of Life for the retelling of these delightful tales. The performance includes the story of Medio Pollito, the little half-chick born with one leg, one wing, one eye, and half of a beak.
In addition, guests can watch as a trickster rabbit outsmarts a hungry coyote again and again.  All of these classic stories portray the themes of friendship and overcoming adversity, making them perfect for young audiences and parents alike.
Courtesy of Mesner Puppet Theater“Each of the stories is like a favorite fable with important life lessons learned through thoughtful action…This particular group of stories bring a south-of-the-border flavor that is brilliantly colorful, tremendously fun and un poco picante,” said Paul Bolton of Broadway World.
Mesner Puppet Theater has been performing nationally and internationally for more than 30 years. Animal Amigos features glove, hand-and-rod, and rod puppets and is presented in a combination of English and Spanish.
