Video Sunday: Puppets and Python
You know, I liked these videos so much the first time, that I’m gonna show ’em again! Forgive the repetition.
Thanks to Outside of a Dog for the link.
Here’s something new. The annual Los Angeles Times/UCLA Festival of Books has invited Rogue Artists Ensemble to perform at this years festival on Sunday, April 27th.
" In 2006, The Story of Frog Belly Rat Bone was discovered by Rogue Artists Ensemble. Its lovable characters, quirky aesthetic, and solid message immediately endeared the story to the entire ensemble and we wasted no time in contacting Candlewick Press for permission to adapt this wonderful book into a children’s play. To our great delight, Timothy agreed to allow us this honor. Now the gears are beginning to turn on a world class stage production of this incredibly unique book. An early staging of this production flowered in the summer of 2007."
And as you can see, it looks quite nice.
Julie Taymor redux, it seems.
Have a lovely Sunday, y’all!
