The Hollow Stump

Seven very different animals seek shelter from the winter cold and snow in a large hollow stump. The cuddly, hand-crafted rod-puppets will enchant any child as the characteristics of each animal are revealed through a unique and descriptive poem and song. When the animals let newcomers enter and the space inside the stump grows tighter, these songs interweave. Adapted from the popular tale, The Mitten, this tale celebrates community, as the animals learn to share one.

Our AHA Kids Series is appropriate for ages 3 and 8 with their parents. This show is FREE and open to the public — Your generous donation to College Park Arts Exchange is always appreciated!

New Deal Cafe in Greenbelt

On Sunday, January 24 at 2 p.m., Beech Tree Puppets bring their new show, Rainbow Crow Brings Daylight, to the New Deal Café. The show combines two American Indian creation stories from the Lenape and the Inuit tribes. Crow has been revered by many cultures throughout the ages. Follow Crow on his journey to the Sky Spirit, as he saves the animals and then travels to the Land of the Light. The show premiered in December 2015 at Greenbelt Elementary School as part of a two-year artists-in-residency, funded by the PTA, the GES Family Art Fund, and a grant from the Prince George’s Arts and Humanities Council (PGAHC). This free performance at the New Deal Café is Local Beech Tree Puppets To Perform January 24 sponsored by the Friends of New Deal Café Arts with support from the City of Greenbelt. The show, which is suitable for ages 4 to 104, lasts about 45 minutes. For more information, go to http://newdealcafe.com or http://beechtreepuppets.com.

Free.
