Treat the Kiddos to a Unique Puppet Show That Tells the Story of Larger-Than-Life Paul Bunyan

Time to saddle up for a 10-gallon historical hoedown! The Center for Puppetry Arts is rounding up some of America's most famous heroes and heroines to present a production packed with tall tales, twangy tunes (performed live) and glory stories of the American West. Make plans to attend Paul Bunyan and the Tall Tale Medicine Show this Thursday, February 21st!

At Paul Bunyan and the Tall Tale Medicine Show, folklore fans will hear how the larger-than-life lumberjack Paul Bunyan and his devoted friend Babe the Blue Ox invent logging; how Hekeke saves her tribe from a terrible people-eating ogre; how John Henry single-handedly hammers his way through a mountain to become a true steel-driving man; and how Pecos Bill tames the wildest stallion in the land to become King of the Cowboys. It's educational fun for the whole family!

Adapted and directed by the Center's Artistic Director Jon Ludwig, Paul Bunyan and the Tall Tale Medicine Show features rod, shadow and hand puppets along with live music. All of the puppets, props and scenery were designed and built onsite by the Center's staff.

Recommended for ages four and up, Paul Bunyan and the Tall Tale Medicine Show will be presented in the Mainstage Theater on Thursday, February 21st. Tickets for both adults and children retail for $19.50 and may be purchased online at
