IT and GIT or Change Makes the World Go ‘Round
Sat, January 21 2017 · 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm
In the Heart of the Beast
Part of our Ta-Da! Saturday Puppet Shows for Kids
Performances at 10am and noon
by Theresa Linnihan
Millions and billions of years ago two cousins floated happily in a primeval ocean. Floating was about all they could do because little IT and little GIT were amoebas. But nothing can float forever. Volcanoes erupt. Oceans shift. And the cousins must change or perish.
Theresa Linnihan presents an original take on the story of evolution. Performing with a cranky (a form of primitive animation) and colorful shadow puppets, Theresa invites the audience to cheer little IT and GIT along the dangerous and miraculous path to becoming human.
IT and GIT is performed in English. We find that children love puppetry in any language! Tickets are $7 suggested donation ($2 suggested donation for residents of Powderhorn and Phillips Neighborhoods).
Come for the show and stay for the family Make-n-Take activities in our classroom at 11am each Saturday morning. Registration for workshops is recommended and can be made at the 10am show or by calling 612-721- 2535 the previous week. The workshop price is $5 for children and $3 for adults.
