Centers for Puppetry Arts: Mother Goose August 18 - September 26

Clap and Sing Along to Stories From Rhymeville

August 20, 2021

Adapted by Amy Sweeney

Mother Goose is missing, but you can help find her with some assistance from your favorite nursery rhyme characters. Humpty Dumpty, Little Bo Peep, Jack & Jill and all the other citizens of Rhymeville need help to look for clues to Mother Goose’s whereabouts. Bright colors, fun original music, familiar stories engage children in a creative experience that supports learning and social development. The whole family is invited to clap and sing along!
