Vagabond Puppets Presents: Ferdinand the Bull

The classic tale told with life-size puppets about the bull from Spain, based on the classic tale by Munro Leaf and illustrations by Robert Lawson. The story of the bull who wouldn’t fight will be told in a narrated ballet with a larger-than-life bull, masked dancers, and specialized mechanical figures. Each scene brings to life one of the pages of the book, and the puppets and scenery are based as closely as possible on the illustrations in the book. After the program, students will get involved in an on-stage demonstration of conflict resolution techniques without violence. This is the year of the Ox with a Year of the Ox-born president.
