Recycled thrift store items are given new life in this fantastic, frenetic retelling based on the Collodi classic text.
Found-object puppet characters are constructed from various recycled things like kitchen utensils, baskets and tennis rackets.
In addition to the found-object puppets, this original one-man “tour de farce” combines authentic Italian music, Commedia-style mask work, and plenty of audience participation!
