Local production company presents one-man show featuring family-friendly tales

Tuesday, July 18, 2017 — ATLANTA (July 18, 2017) – The Center for Puppetry Arts is pleased to present Billy Goats Gruff & Other Stuff performed by All Hands Productions of Atlanta, August 10 – 13. Families are invited to meet a cantankerous troll, persnickety chickens, a wolf that’s allergic to blueberries and a host of other kooky characters in this mixture of traditional folk tales, witty original stories and silly songs! The show is sure to have guests tapping their toes and laughing out loud. Billy Goat’s Gruff & Other Stuff will be performed by David Stephens, founder of All Hands Productions. Stephens, a multi-talented solo puppeteer and banjo player, will puppeteer and voice all of the various characters as well as perform music for four separate stories including the tale of Little Red Riding Hood.

For more than a decade, All Hands Productions has been dedicated to bringing quality puppet productions to children and their parents. Billy Goats Gruff & Other Stuff is the winner of a 2005 UNIMA-USA Citation of Excellence (American puppetry’s highest honor). This performance is recommended for children ages 4 and older.
