Puppet Guild says
The Puppet Guild of Greater Saint Louis, Inc. is presenting “The Rabbit in the Moon” and “The Musical Ant”. These are two classic Mexican animal tales which will be performed by the Eulenspiegel Puppets of West Liberty, IA. This will be performed by puppeteers Monica Leo and Eli Portugal. Senora Portugal is a Mexican puppeteer and co-founder of Mojiganga Arte Escenico.

The Rabbit in the Moon gives a whimsical explanation for the shadows we see in the moon, while delighting audiences with the age old battle of wits between rabbit and coyote. The Musical Ant, a lesser known tale, is the story of Hormiguita (liitle ant) as he learns to play the piano and brings peace to his ant colony through music. The production uses hand puppets, rod puppets, masked characters, and music and incorporates both Spanish and English.

The performances will be on Saturday May 9, 2015 at the Regional Arts Commission, 1st floor studio theatre, 6128 Delmar Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63112. Performances are at 10:30a.m. and 1:30 p.m. with a special Mexican Children's Songs and Games session for children led by the performers following the first performance.

Tickets are only $3.00 per person and discounted for groups of 10 or more. For reservations or more information call 314-252-0051 or e-mail RSVP@PuppetGuild.org. This event is made possible with financial assistance from the Regional Arts Commission. The Puppet Guild of Greater Saint Louis, Inc. is a chartered guild of The Puppeteers of America, Inc.
