Rag & Bone Puppet Theatre

Felicity Falls – Virtual or In-Person Performance

A group of animals find a new place to live, in Felicity Falls. In a series of short stories, the show follows their everyday lives as they build their home and their community. These gentle, funny stories about families are told with stuffed animal toy puppets that encourage children to engage in play-based learning. The show encourages optimism and resilience in the face of adversity. It values the importance of community, a sense of belonging, having a network of caring adults, and self-respect.
