The Preschool Playhouse Live fall season kickoff was a success. There were three shows with 350 parents and children in attendance on Fri., Aug. 16. Kids met Zeek, the ring-tailed lemur, Jasper, the tree frog, Buster, who looks like a green Ernie from Sesame Street and Wally, the toucan. They got a peek at Tucker, the rabbit, Stu Newsman, the PPLN news anchor and Lari Hari, a funny and friendly monster puppet. These are just a few of the amazing characters created for this one-of-a-kind puppet show.
This interactive, 25-minute production opened with a song, followed by a video. The word for the evening was “love.” Then, there were skits with a few puppets, followed by a Bible lesson teaching kids what God says about love. A Bible verse is taught while kids are up on their feet. Then, another song keeps children engaged, which everyone, including the puppets, sing. The final video included Yeti and Simon in a bathtub singing to us about the importance of becoming clean, as Jesus allows us to do when we come to him and accept his gift. The energy is infectious and the humor consistent. It is a show your kids will want to return to again and again.
