Rolly Poly Rice Ball is a story of a poor man from Japan who packed three rice balls for his lunch. When he was walking through the fields to go to work, a rice ball fell out of his handkerchief and rolled down a hole. He tried to stop this from happening but when he leaned over the hole he heard someone singing. He was so surprised and interested that he too rolled down the hole. This story tell us about all the adventures he had in this magical place and how he became wealthy after this adventure. The poor man's neighbor heard about this journey and with greed in his heart tried to replicate it. (Guess what his reward was for his deed driven by a greedy heart?)
The puppet show in the Waldorf tradition features hand-sewn puppets, sumptuous plant-dyed silks, and a simple, age-appropriate performance style suited to young children's attention spans and level of awareness. A peaceful and enchanted mood prevails. Our puppet shows are appropriate for 3-8 year-olds.
