Take a journey to Goblin’s Hallow with The Frisch Marionettes. Adapted from the Brothers’ Grimm classic tale, this story teaches the importance of making promises that one can keep and the perils of exaggerating the truth. Working primarily with marionettes, The Frisch Marionettes perform in the traditional styles of 19th Century European Puppetry. Drawing inspiration from the great European troupes such as the Salzburg Marionette Theatre, they endeavor to bring one of the great old world arts to the contemporary audience. Recommended for grades pre-K-6.
