Dream Tale Puppets and Falmouth Art Center will present “Badger Meets the Fairies” by Margaret Moody Puppets. The presentation will take place at the Center (137 Gifford St, Falmouth) on Wednesday, April 17, at 11:00 a.m. All are invited to stay for puppet-building workshop after the show.
Mr. Badger is thrilled to meet Blossom, a flower fairy, in the garden. He flies away with her to help the fairies build a playground. But then it’s complicated: the fairies won’t use cement; and Mr. Badger wants to learn to fly. This gentle tale is based on European fairy lore. “Badger Meets the Fairies” is best for ages 4 to 10, and lasts 40 minutes.
Fairy puppets and sets for their garden were built by visual artist Sandra Pastrana and Margaret Moody. Alison Plante of Berklee School of Music composed original music for the piece based on Celtic melodies.
This program is supported in part by a grant from The Falmouth Cultural Council, local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
