THE WILLOW GIRL is a story of a young Chinese girl who immigrates to the American frontier where she faces discrimination. The young girl possesses special gifts which help her. The story is a wonderful blend of humor, mystery, drama and magical effects.

All of the shows by Catskill Puppet Theatre present an example of quality puppetry accompanied by original music and stories designed to entertain as well as instruct. Each show we present uses full sets, large scale animated rod puppets, professional sound and lighting, and a healthy dose of participation and imagination from the audience. Each show has a different theme and gentle lesson while exhibiting the multi-disciplinary nature of the art form.

As always, each puppet theatre show presented to elementary age children is of high quality, which is the hallmark of the Catskill Puppet Theatre. It carries on the living tradition of the old traveling puppet troupes.
