Superheroes come in all forms…including bananas
Wow, that was exhausting.
We just watched the Dragon Theater Puppet Show’s performance of “Home Grown Heroes.” It was 20 minutes of frenzy and slightly varied voices from what appears to be a one-man show.
To be honest, I sort of lost track of the plot. It had something to do with defeating a Bad Idea and ended with happiness, relief, and a shout-out to self-esteem. Nevertheless, the cast of characters including a banana, a flower, and a hamster kept me entertained. And I admired the ad libbing skills of the puppeteer when the hamster accidentally flew off the stage.
Judging from the ever increasing audience and the number of kids who stayed riveted until the end, I’d say the puppet show is definitely worth checking out if you have kids or want to pretend to be one for a few chaotic, colorful, pun-filled minutes.
The puppet show can be found in the Kids Area just inside the Superhero Adventure building. Check the Fan Fair for showtimes.
