Little Red Riding Hood Puppet Show
Eulenspiegel's adaptation of this beloved Grimms fairy tale uses delightfully crafted miniature Bohemian marionettes created by puppeteer Monica Leo. The set is an extra-large pop-up storybook also designed and created by Leo. The script, laced with wit and whimsy, was written by puppeteer Teri Jean Breitbach. The production was directed by well-known director Michael Sokoloff. In addition to seven puppets, the cast includes a wacky, flamboyant storyteller who relates to the audience as well as the puppets.

Holiday hi-jinks ensue when Sister returns to Popejoy Hall in Sister’s Christmas Catechism. She has been watching too much CSI, but that’s not a bad thing when it comes to uncovering laughs. Who else but Sister would take on the age-old mystery of the disappearance of the gold from the stable in Bethlehem? Employing every technique in the book, Sister enlists the help of audience members and creates a life-sized Nativity scene to discover the culprit! Of course, Sister “steals” the show.
