I found it refreshing to find such artsy and high caliber children’s entertainment for a generation used to 3D movies and high action video games. It was a pleasure to see families relaxed and cuddling while getting such a fabulous dose of a beautiful art form. My three daughters and I traveled over an hour to catch this fantastic production. Now that we have discovered the treasure that is The Puppet Co, we plan on returning for every show.

While this is a show specifically for children, adults will enjoy the impressive puppetry, as I myself did. Engaging, entertaining, and just long enough to hold a rambunctious child’s attention, I highly recommend Tales of Beatrix Potter for a fun family outing.

The Wizard of Oz | DC Theatre Scene

The Wizard of Oz | DC Theatre Scene | What's Happening at the Playhouse!?! | Scoop.it

Only the creative minds of folks from The Puppet Co could find a zany way to give the Wizard of Oz story a fresh new spin while encouraging imagination and make believe. In their usual fashion, the company members took the time to deconstruct the scenes to relay the message with a contemporary flair while staying true to the original script, and created bouncy new tunes with ultra-witty lyrics, original music by Christopher Piper and Eric Brooks. Add in tremendous costumes and talented puppeteers committed to the integrity of the precious story, and you’ve got a sure-fire hit.

Our Kids - Review of the Wizard of Oz

Our Kids - Review of the Wizard of Oz | What's Happening at the Playhouse!?! | Scoop.it
It's one thing to take something hard and make it look easy. It's another thing entirely to take something hard and make it look magical. That's what this talented team does. I found myself in complete awe of the actors' abilities to maneuver and voice (both speaking and singing) multiple puppets at once, presenting a very complex tale that moves very quickly. The production also enchanted the kids (ages 9 and 4) on our review team, both very high energy types. Their eyes were glued to the stage for the entire 55 minutes, which is quite a feat.

Christopher Piper is a founding member of The Puppet Co. He, too, has an old world charm and is very at home on the stage. He is a jolly looking fellow who one can easily imagine being cast as Santa Claus, Maurice from Beauty and the Beast or Geppetto.
