The Grimm family is on the verge of unveiling their amazing new Story Machine, which runs on steam and dreams and promises to revolutionize how stories are told and how people connect. When their fabulous contraption malfunctions, they have to invent a new way of storytelling on the spot, using puppets and help from the audience. The Grimms explore some of their favorite fairy tales, including The Hare and the Hedgehog, Hansel and Gretel, and The Brave Little Tailor. The show features multiple styles of puppetry, live music and physical comedy. Geared towards ages 4 and up, fun for all!
The Amazing Story Machine is a recipient of a 2018 Jim Henson Foundation Family Grant, and it is the latest puppet show from the theatre company Doppelskope.
