There's a Nightmare in my Closet by Mercer Mayer & Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll
This classic Tears of Joy production is performed with a variety of styles of puppets. The boy and the Nightmare are adaptations of Japanese bunraku puppets and the Jabberwocky is performed with three dimensional shadow puppets created from kitchen utensils which fuels the imagination!
These stories are tied together by the theme of facing and overcoming our fears in ways that will elicit both wonder and giggles.
