This Sunday at 2 pm and 4:30 pm, we have Knuffle Bunny presented by the Kennedy Center.
I saw this show last year at the Kennedy Center, and it is really excellent. It is my personal mission to bring in work of the highest quality for our young audiences, and this show is on par with the very best work being presented in the United States.
The story is about a young girl, Trixie, who looses her bunny at the Laundry Mat. Because she doesn’t know how to speak, she can’t communicate to her father what is missing and why she is so upset.
I have been doing workshops for this show all week at low income schools. The students have all have done a great job making up dances to the music from the play and pretending to be Trixie and communicate without being able to use words. They also learned about Bunraku puppetry, which is a Japanese form up puppetry where you can see the actors on-stage maneuvering the puppets.
I hope I will be able to see you at the show! Please feel free to post comments and let me know what you think.
