Bob Brown's Amazing
storybook headers
Not every situation is right for a story show. Sometimes the age-range of the audience is too wide, (with everyone from grandma and grampa to the eighteen-month old toddler) usually attending a company picnic, or a holiday performance of some sort, or a summer performanc in a park, etc. Or, the audience is all about the same age, say three, or four, but they are really too young to focus in on a story that has a great deal of dialogue, and a rather complicated plot to follow.
The answer to the problem is a variety performance performed with "trick" marionettes - puppets on strings that have been strung to perform specific "tricks" such as skating, performing on a trapeze, juggling, blowing up a balloon and the like. Each marionette performs an ACT, usually lasting between two and three minutes.

The younger audience members take the performing marionettes at face value, while the older children and adults are trying to figure out how Bob is getting his marionettes to do all these seemingly impossible feats. We offer nine different variety shows, plus four special seaonal variety performances.
