About the Show: Bits 'N Pieces Puppet Theatre returns to NFCC's Van H. Priest Auditorium stage to perform ”Aesop’s Dinosaur Fable," a mammoth musical featuring nine-foot-tall, dancing, glow-in-the-dark puppets, live actress wee TryANTasaurus, and animated puppet projections. Based on “The Ant and the Grasshopper,” the Farmer Ant’s Almanac predicts an ICE STORM blowing their way. Soon it’s going to snow and snow and snow. Stage magic and imagination transform the classic story into a musical fable for today full of magical costumes and Aesop’s lesson to “Prepare today for tomorrow.” Don’t miss it!

Actress and puppet builder Holli Rubin performs as wee TryANTasaurus, hardest worker in the forest.  Puppeteer and lyricist Jerry Bickel performs as the happy-footed giant green dinosaur.
