BETWEEN the RAINS
Rainforest animals thwart loggers!
Animals occupy tree!
Puppets slam woodcutter! That’s the news from the rainforest in the Ware House Puppets production of “Between the Rains”–a fanciful tale of animal activism inspired by current events. Enjoy the action as puppets and performers work together to thwart a dastardly plan to cut down trees in a protected rain forest area. A powerful message about natural resources conveyed in a delightful manner–”Between the Rains” will delight children of all ages.

The puppeteers of The Ware House Puppets began performing together in the spring of 2005 as a volunteer troupe for the Mayborn Museum at Baylor University in Waco, TX. The troupe performed local and national festivals including Waco Arts Fest 2009. Most troupe members are certified teachers and as well as members of the Puppeteers of America. “The Goat in the Chili Patch” is a local favorite and was also been seen at the 2007 National Puppetry Festival of The Puppeteers of America in St. Paul, MN. We’re pleased to bring this charming little show to the Waco Cultural Arts Festival, with all the humor and zaniness expected from the Ware House Puppets.
