Sparky's gentle humor appeals to children as young as 3 and keeps their parents and grandchildren laughing too. Come for the show; stay for puppet-play and coffee.

Sparky Davis has been performing favorite children's stories for schools, libraries and festivals throughout New England for more than 30 years. Each of her shows features colorful hand puppets and plenty of audience participation.

"Stories from Snowy Lands" is the third show of this winter's Saturdays with Puppets series of fine puppetry for families at Arlington Center for the Arts. Still to come:
