Rainbow Puppet Productions introduces a whole new dimension in learning. The award-winning team has created a new musical review that shares the joy of reading through music, dance, puppetry, and story-telling. It's a travelling, early reading program designed around our new children's book.
And thanks to a very generous grant from Optima Health, some schools and youth centers will be getting the show at no cost.
"Open a Book" doesn't end with the show. There's a storybook, created especially for this production that re-tells many of the highlights of the program. Students can relive and re-tell the stories to their families.
Rainbow Puppet Productions have long been recognized for their ability to excite and entertain young audiences. In fact, they are the Young Audiences of Virginia Sunburst Award winner for their performance excellence. This fast-paced program will keep even the youngest of audiences entertained.
Even if we visited you last year, this is an all-new show with all new books. We've added a story about bullying and character development and created a book for older students so everyone will get a book this year!
Pre-k to 2nd graders will recieve THE TALL, THE TOUGH, AND THE TINY. It's a storybook about teamwork and appreciating the skills of others. 3RD grade and older will recieve MARY PEAKE AND THE MIGHTY ACORN about Virginia's legendary teacher. It covers many history SOL's related to our nation's growth.
The show will be on tour throughout the state of Virginia in 2020.
We have received a grant for 150 shows. Just fill out the form above or call us at 757 851-3266.
A history book allows us to meet Abraham Lincoln and Mary Peake. Lincoln introduces the Emancipation Proclamation which is read under an oak tree in Hampton, Virginia. Under that oak tree, we meet Mary Peake who is teaching newly freed African Americans to read.
Mary Peake shares the joy or reading to her neighbors. She then shares tales of their past.
We meet Katherine Johnson who used her math skills to allow Neil Armstrong to walk on the moon.
A visit to Mother Goose Land to hear many classic rhymes and songs including "Hickory, Dickory, Dock" and "Mary, Mary Quite Contrary."
A science book introduces animals “Great and Small.” This includes an electric eel right out of the Amazon.
We run out of time to meet all the animals… so the audience is encouraged to seek out more at their local library or through a book of their own.
Here are highlights and details on the program...
