April 11, 2021: A fun new show!
THE BREMEN TOWN MUSICIANS
This handsome fellow is one of the stars of our new show. He's joined by a donkey, a dog, and a cat, some plot twists, and an adventure! This beloved Grimm's fairy tale jumps into the 21st century with live music-guitar and piano-by Laura Kittrell.
It's large and tall enough to be presented as a Drive-In show, and you can listen through your car radio! Supported by an Artsdollar$ grant from Quad City Arts, it's available for booking at a very reasonable price. Contact us before the grant money is all used up!
Eulenspiegel Puppets performs a brand new show featuring the fun adventures animals are having while humans are limiting their community contacts. Based on true stories of animal antics during a pandemic, with a lot of imagination thrown in.
