Puppets' Night Out! Presents: "The Revenge of The Terrible Black Snake"
Puppet Central @ Atelier Gallery presents "Puppets' Night Out!" a Saturday night, family-friendly puppet series in St Johns, Portland, Oregon.
This Saturday, Shae Uisna Puppets present, "The Revenge of the Terrible Black Snake," a puppet show with rod and hand puppets. A timid man named Badger must make a dangerous journey to collect an inheritance from his uncle, and in the process, must confront some of his worst fears. Unexpected humor and bravery save the day and make for marvelous storytelling! Classical guitar accompaniment by John Daniel Teply.
