On February 7 we enjoyed a live performance by Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia, performed at the Carlsen Center at Johnson County Community College. There were three stories – Brown Bear, Very Hungry Caterpillar, and Papa, Please Get the Moon For Me. Mermaid Theatre used solid black backdrops and large-scale puppets to bring the three stories to life. The pacing of the story was excellent, and the narrator had a wonderful voice. The kids especially enjoyed that the performance was called a “no shushing” show – they were free to exclaim and clap throughout.
Thanks to the JCCC staff for bringing in the wonderful performance! We had a great time and look forward to attending upcoming performances.
