Funny, interactive play presented by unique puppets
A new children's puppet theatre 'Babushka's Tales' is showing their great little production of 'Little Red Riding Hood' this Sunday, 31 January at the East Melbourne library.

Amazing puppets, made by a talented award-winning puppet maker from St Petersburg, Natalia Burnos are happy to speak both Russian and English. This time they'll be performing in English. Perhaps you can pick up a bit of an accent in the Wolf's hungry howl or Little Red Riding Hood's singing?

Children don't care. The theater, that was created just last year by two Russian lovers of puppetry, has already entertained many Russian and Aussie kids in Melbourne.

Everybody giggles at silly Little Red Riding Hood's mum flipping and losing pancakes, helps Little Red Riding Hood hide in the audience and loves getting sprayed with real Wolf's tears.

The theatre screen itself is a beautiful sight, painted in Russian folklore style as a wooden Russian hut, "izba".

This production of the 'Little Red Riding Hood' is aimed at 3 to 7 year olds but is equally enjoyed by the young and the old. Beware, it's not a drama, but rather a comedy. Though, of course, if you are only 3 this might be your first thriller.
Scary but not too much Wolf

If you'd like a little bit of puppet theatre magic in your weekend, hurry to book. This is a one off performance before 'Babushka's Tales' theatre takes a break from performing to prepare a new production.
