Mirror

A puppet show

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 is developing a new children’s puppet show.

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 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.
