Eulenspiegel Presents:

Eulenspiegel's adaptation of this beloved Grimms fairy tale uses delightfully crafted miniature Bohemian marionettes created by puppeteer Monica Leo. The set is an extra-large pop-up storybook also designed and created by Leo. The script, laced with wit and whimsy, was written by puppeteer Teri Jean Breitbach. The production was directed by well-known director Michael Sokoloff. In addition to seven puppets, the cast includes a wacky, flamboyant storyteller who relates to the audience as well as the puppets.
