Brother Coyote wants to eat Doña Conchita's plump chickens, but Sister Fox is always one step ahead of him.

This is the same show that delighted audiences in Atlanta, GA, at the Center for Puppetry Arts this January. I play the wily Sister Fox.

All voices and songs are performed live by me and fellow puppeteers Andre Nelson and Zane Exactly. We use Japanese Bunraku-style puppets, rod puppets, and song to tell this humorous version of the beloved fairytale.

The script was written by Jean Enticknap and Stephanie Diaz Reppe. Sue Ennis wrote the songs, and Jean directed this lively production. 

The script is based on a set of Mexican folktales and incorporates Spanish and English in the storytelling. This show is recommended for ages 3 and up.

The shows at Sunset Hill Community Club are on May 21 and 22 at 1 and 3 p.m. The community club is in Ballard at 3003 NW 66th Street.

The performances at BYT Ivanhoe Theatre are on May 28 and 29 at 2 and 4 p.m. The theater is in Bellevue at 16661 Northup Way.

Magnuson Park shows are on June 18 and 19 at 1 and 3 p.m. Thistle Theatre's studio is in Magnuson Park in building 30. The address is 6310 NE 74th St. Ste 131 in Seattle.

Please note that the Magnuson Park shows are in our studio, NOT in the theater building! This is different than most previous performances at Magnuson. This is a small, intimate space, and seating is VERY limited. Please buy tickets in advance or consider attending at one of our other venues.  

Come see this fun puppet show while you can!
