A wild and zany romp with Mr. Punch and Friends. Featuring beautiful hand carved wooden puppets and lots of audience involvement!.

"Professor Howard's Punch and Judy Show" Is an adaptation of one of the longest runningpuppet shows in history. The original show was first observed on May 9, 1662 ! and Mr. Punch has been a well known character ever since. His figure appears all over the place, from Movies and TV to books, advertising, antique toys and so on. The show is pretty fast moving and the focus is on comedy.

“The Snowmaiden” story has been told in Russia for hundreds of years. Long ago, people invented stories and characters to explain natural phenomena (like snow falling to the ground) that they could not understand. Seasons of the year and snow -called “sneg” in Russia, are natural phenomena explored in “The Snowmaiden”.

Mythical figures, animals and humans from one of Russia's most beloved

folk tales populate this production. While Father Frost spreads Winter's cold throughout the land, he comes across a most amazing sight.

 

A perfect little maiden sculpted entirely of snow and ice!

A breath of life from Mother Spring awakens the frozen figure,

and the girl's kind, fun-filled nature delights everyone she meets.

Dreams come true for a childless couple who embrace the Snowmaiden

as their own daughter with a love as deep and wide as Old Mother Russia herself.

But can love sustain this child of winter upon the arrival of Spring?
