Join Mr. Bunni, a door-to-door vegetable salesman, as he journeys from earth to sea and even to outer space to find new customers. Will he ever sell enough carrots to please his boss? Or will his new friends teach him a valuable lesson? This imaginative tabletop performance features a live actor, colorful 2D paper puppets, and plenty of audience interaction.
Brad Shur is a versatile puppeteer who has created and performed characters made of everything from pixels to paper mache. He is the Artist in Residence at Puppet Showplace Theatre in Brookline, MA.
We offer two performances of this warm, funny show:11am and 2pm
Please stay after to plant your own carrot and play with puppets!
