KOLOBOK


 A Russian folktale about the adventures of a little Butterball named Kolobok, who was baked by an elderly childless couple. This story is well known in America as The Gingerbread Man, and in Scandinavia as The Pancake Man. And now, you will be introduced to their Russian cousin Kolobok. In this production, the adventures of Kolobok are seen through the eyes of two forest creatures, performed by live actors who bring to life the floor puppets -- animals in traditional Russian costumes.

Vince Paul, Music Hall’s President & Artistic Director, notes that “as the downtown area real estate
becomes increasingly in demand, it’s imperative that our city’s non-commercial performing artists
be able to continue to present their work in the heart of the Entertainment District.
The artists of PuppetART create top-notch, finely crafted work that has been entertaining
children and families for some twenty years, and Music Hall is thrilled
to be able to help them sustain their success.”
