Jury’s Comment

“Excellent puppets, wonderful characters and beautifully caricatured figures charmed and entertained with such lovely free movement. Simple uncluttered sets were used so imaginatively. The opening and closing setup with the animated bed, door, window, and mirror were most effective. It was all we needed to follow this story, the rest happened in our imagination. The humans on the stage never distracted from the puppets but were used as an excellent contrast. Visually most exciting.”
