Hosted by 21c Museum Hotel and presented in partnership with Squallis Puppeteers and the Louisville Academy of Music, join us for a very special presentation of Ferdinand & Friends!

After the show, the Squallis team will lead puppet-making workshop so children in the audience can take home a puppet of their very own.

About “Ferdinand & Friends”

This is a musical performance and suitcase puppet show of Ferdinand the Bull by Munro Leaf. Louisville Academy of Music’s Executive Director, Sara Callaway, holds a masters in violin performance and will perform the story of Ferdinand the Bull for violin and narrator written by Alan Ridout. A Squallis puppeteer will present a suitcase-sized puppet show of the story alongside the music and narration. Show also includes a live performance of the African folktale “Abiyoyo”, featuring a larger-than life, wearable Squallis puppet, and a traditional Appalachian fiddle tune with jig doll accompaniment.

Recommended for children 3-10, but kids of all ages are welcome to laugh and learn with us.
