“Billy Goats Gruff and Other Stuff” by All Hands Productions

Did you know that Little Red Riding Hood has a first name?
In this one-man performance utilizing hand, rod, and glove puppets, Stephens combines classic fairy tales with a few of his own original tales. In “The Three Billy Goats Gruff” you’ll see what happens when three billy goats encounter a greedy troll. Parker Pig enjoys some good luck when he stumbles over a watering can in “The One Little Pig” and the Three Wishes; a retelling of a family favorite. One of Stephens’ original stories, “The Two Farmers,” involves Farmer Frick and Farmer Frack and how they learn to work together to make a pot of stew. All of this, plus the antics of some silly chickens, make Billy Goats Gruff and Other Stuff a must see.

 In 2005, this show was honored with a Citation of Excellence from UNIMA-USA (Union Internationale de la Marionette): the equivalent of an Oscar in the puppetry world.

This performance is funded, in part, by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.

MicheLee Puppets and Venue on the Lake are partnering up once again for a year’s worth of Sunday Family Fun Days in 2017. Sunday Family Fun Days will take place on the last Sunday of selected months at Venue on the Lake in Maitland, and will feature special guests, themed events, and puppet performances.

“Public performances provide the opportunity to empower the whole family. Students see MicheLee Puppets performances in school and can discuss bully prevention strategies with their friends, or practice rhyming for reading readiness in their classrooms, but we want our messages to reach further. By partnering with Venue on the Lake-Maitland Civic Center, multiple generations can attend a show together, which opens up a dialogue about these important topics, extending beyond the school environment,” said Tracey Conner, Executive Director of MicheLee Puppets.
