It’s an absolute must-do for my family whenever we visit the park. I love the show’s original songs, and especially the ingenious puppets created by Michael Curry. The show uses a Japanese style of puppetry called bunraku, in which the puppeteer’s body becomes a part of the puppet, and puppets in this show range from the size of your hand to the size of a small car.
I recently was able to go behind the scenes at the show to meet two of the show’s puppeteers, Jennifer and Robby, to learn more.
