This weekend June 24th and 25th catch two Punschi shows at the annual
Mutton and Mead Festival in Turner’s Falls, MA.
Enjoy a funny adventure with Kasper, beloved hand puppet hero of Germany, who is known for his stocking cap and audience-engaging humor. Kasper packs to go on a journey, but before he can leave, a cow steals his suitcase. With the help of his best friend, the endearing giant Augustin, Kasper has to go on a rollicking chase to reclaim his suitcase from the cow.
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
Fritzi’s Flea Circus welcomes audiences into a delightful world of circus feats, presented by a tiny flea with a big personality. In this 20 minute show, you will experience Fritzi as the strong man, the high diver and even watch as he is shot out of a cannon into the audience. This miniature world invites the power of imagination, play and ear wiggling, scalp tickling, heart-warming fun.
