As part of its 2018 Fall Puppet Performance Series and Mansfield Downtown Partnership’s sixth annual Winter Welcome, the Ballard Institute and Museum of Puppetry is pleased to present The Gingerbread Man by WonderSpark Puppets on Dec. 1, 2018 at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. in the Ballard Institute Theater, located at 1 Royce Circle in Downtown Storrs.
“Run, run, as fast as you can–you can’t catch me I’m the Gingerbread Man!” The Gingerbread Man is the classic story of a little running cookie–with a Christmas twist. Watch as the Gingerbread Man outwits and outruns various hungry animals–and figures out what he really wants for Christmas. This handpuppet show is performed in a traditional puppet booth. This show is 40 minutes long and is recommended for ages 3+.
WonderSpark Puppets performs highly interactive puppet shows throughout the NYC area and beyond! Since 2009 they have been entertaining family audiences at NYC landmarks like Central Park, the New York Public Library, Mt Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital, Bryant Park, and more. Fusing puppetry and storytelling with memorable characters and silly songs, WonderSpark performs at public and private venues.
Ticket Prices: Adults: $12; Members/Seniors: $10; Students: $8; Kids: $6 (12 years and under).
