Grandmother Stories

Musical Puppet show for adults and children, with puppets made on the spot from traditional materials and featuring

Оld women and a man – all together are trying put to sleep their grandchild.. However, she wants a story first.
So, the old people invent stories where a cloth rooster fights with a sunflower lion; broom witches turn a gourd tsar into a donkey: a waistband dragon battles walking cane soldiers.
Eventually they get so involved with acting out the stories that they forget about the girl and she, left alone, falls asleep.
By combining the everyday problems of adults and children with funny stories, folk songs and dances, this production provides suitable entertainment for all ages.
