Enjoy a funny adventure with Kasper, beloved hand puppet hero of Germany, who is known for his stocking cap and audience-engaging humor.

created and performed by Jana Zeller
for adult audiences

This raucous hand puppet piece features traditional German hand puppet heroes Kasper and Gretel, as they struggle with the duties of a married couple inside an old shack. The action turns comical, tragic and grotesque as the two juggle the baby, their chores and making money, dream of a better future and hide a dangerous secret from each other.

The Punschi Flea Circus comes to town on Wednesday June 28th, 11 AM at the
Putney Library

This miniature world invites the power of imagination, play and ear wiggling, scalp tickling, heart-warming fun.
