Puppetry Extravaganza!

Puppetry Extravaganza!

Presented by IBEX Puppetry at Atlantic Center for the Arts

MicheLee Puppets turns 30 this year and we want to celebrate with you! Following a 10am performance in Altamonte Springs (see separate listing), "A Good Day for Pancake" travels to New Smyrna to join the Atlantic Center for the Arts and IBEX Puppetry for PUPPETRY EXTRANVAGANZA, a FREE family day of puppetry performances and workshops!

A Good Day for Pancake (ideal for ages 5-8)

Open your heart to Pancake Pig. When a friend is bullied at school, Pancake doesn’t know what to do. He has to learn that bystanders have a responsibility to report bullying. Can Pancake be a good bystander and help his friend?
Audiences laugh, sing and clap along with “A Good Day For Pancake” as they learn how to be good bystanders...but that’s not all! Immediately following the performance, join puppeteer Jamie Donmoyer as she leads audience members in the construction and performance of a simple hand puppet!
