Puppetkabob presents
"What the Moon Saw"

LICM Theater

Thursday, August 28 and
Friday, August 29 at 2 p.m.

Travel deep beyond the forest, to a land never seen before, where life is guided by a mystical moon. A land inspired by the many tales of Hans Christian Andersen.

Follow a Duckling through a world where nature is unpredictable and not every creature is good. Watch as a foolish Frog, a sly clever Ms. Mouse and a pompous Mr. Mole distract the Ducklings in the search for a true friend.

Come see what the Moon saw when the petals of a flower opened to reveal an incredible journey. LICM welcomes back talented artist and puppeteer Sarash Frechette creator of "The Snowflake Man" to present another original theater piece.

Ages: 3 and up. Fee: $5 with museum admission ($4 LICM members), $10 theater only.
