SummaryJoin Tears of Joy Theatre for a puppet show based on a story from Venezuela.
DescriptionIn this bilingual (Spanish/English) story from Venezuela, our tiny heroine thinks herself much too fine to accept the proposal of a common mouse, as in love with her as he may be. Indeed, she sets her sights on ‘worthier’ matches, like the sun, the wind, and the mountain. Yet, her search for a perfect suitor brings her right back to the romantic little mouse who first proposed. Only now, La Ratoncita has learned to see her admirer’s true worth, not to mention the importance of being humble…at least a little bit. This production features both puppets and a live costumed performer. For all ages.
