Web On Strings
Growing up, I never once attended a puppet show, unless you count our school counselor using stuffed animals to teach us about self-esteem and saying no to drugs and bullies. Personally, I always thought the idea of an adult sticking their hand up a doll and using their high-pitched voice to play a character was kind of creepy, but that's just me. Kids these days--well, actually kids past, present and future--are easily amused by anything. This spring, Slappy's Puppet Playhouse would love to amuse your children with E.B Whites classic children's story, Charlotte's Web. It's an endearing tale about a pig named Wilbur and the bond he forms with a barn spider named Charlotte. Wilbur was the runt of his litter of piglets. So, of course, the owner wants to get rid of him, but his daughter intervenes and makes Wilbur her pet pig. Wilbur is then taken to her uncle's farm and happens to meet his future BFF, Charlotte. The puppet version of Charlotte's Web runs through June 21 at Slappy's Puppet Playhouse, located inside the Galleria Mall (13350 Dallas Parkway, Suite 2230). For showtimes and ticket prices, call 214-369-4849 or visit slappysplayhouse.com.
Fridays-Sundays. Starts: April 4. Continues through June 21, 2009
