Mr. Badger is thrilled to meet Blossom, a flower fairy, in the garden. He flies away with her to help the fairies build a playground. But then it's complicated: the fairies won't use cement; and Mr. Badger wants to learn to fly. Join Margaret Moody for a gentle tale based on European fairy lore. Best for ages four and up.

"Badger Meets the Fairies" features puppets and sets built by Sandra Pastrana and Margaret Moody and a music score created by Alison Plante of Berklee College of Music.

Please stay after the show for puppet-play -- and coffee for grown-up friends.
