Eulenspiegel Puppet Theatre performs at Kidzeum

December 1, 2023

Uncle Rabbit's Adventures will be performed at Kidzeum on December 9, 2023 with showtime of 11am, 12:30pm, & 2pm! Renowned for promoting the art of puppetry through high-quality performances, workshops, and creative events. The company is committed to educating the public about the arts, serving as a center for the exchange of ideas, and enhancing the quality of community life. 

Uncle Rabbit's Adventures uses large, beautifully crafted hand puppets and lots of fun props to tell the story of a wealthy land-owning goat who doesnʼt want to share with his neighbors. Watch Tio Conejo and his wife Rosita tend to their chores, plant, harvest, and trick Señor Cabra (Mr. Goat) into sharing his agricultural wealth.

Created by Monica Leo and late Mexican partner puppeteer Eli Portugal, this show is performed by Leo and Stephanie Vallez. It resonates Mexican culture and is enhanced with live music. 


Through the years, the Eulenspiegel Puppeteers have experimented with almost every type of puppet imaginable, have collaborated with musicians, playwrights, directors, designers, and other theater companies, and have worked tirelessly to hone their art form. They have performed at six national Puppeteers of America Festivals, numerous regional festivals, a national festival in the former German Democratic Republic in 1987 (the only company invited from a non-Communist country), international festivals in Austria, Germany, Japan, and the Czech Republic, and national festivals in Germany. In addition, Eulenspiegel has toured in Germany, Japan, Austria and 31 of the 50 states. Eulenspiegel is known for witty scripts, original and expressive puppet designs, soft-sculpted, hand dyed scenery, evocative music, and strong graphics.
