A puppet show for kids

In the middle of a forest clearing a Rabbit, Squirrel, Crane, and Bear stumble across a mysterious reflective object laying in the grass. What could it be? Crane Creations in collaboration with Chamber Music Society of Mississauga and Lutkovno Gledelisce Maribor (Maribor Puppet Theatre) is developing a new children’s puppet show for kids ages 2-6.

The Puppet Show

The Chamber Music Society of Mississauga has collaborated with Crane Creations Theatre Company to present a workshop performance of Mirror in August 2021 at the Small Arms Inspection Building. Resident playwright Eugenia De Jong adapted the original text into a 40 minute musical puppet show, with the help of pianist Eric Geddis. This workshop was performed for audiences aged 2-6 and their families. The Chamber Music Society of Mississauga and Crane Creations are further developing this piece to bring it to children around the world.

In the summer of 2022, the team from Crane Creations Theatre Company travelled to Maribor, Slovenia to work on the next stage of development for this piece with the team at Maribor Puppet Theatre, including puppet builder Aleksander Andželović create unique puppets made especially for this production, and continue workshopping the story, script, lyrics and music. The final product will be performed in the end of August in Slovenia, and then transported back to Mississauga, for it’s Canadian premiere.
