DETROIT—Kolobok, PuppetART’s March offering at The Music Hall’s Jazz Cafe March 29 at 4:00 pm, is based on a Russian folktale about the adventures of a little Butterball named Kolobok, who was baked by an elderly childless couple. Tickets are $10.00 for children and $15.00 for adults. To purchase tickets, visit app.etapestry.com.
This story is well known in America as The Gingerbread Man; in Scandinavia — as The Pancake Man. In this production, the adventures of Kolobok are seen through the eyes of two forest creatures, performed by live actors who bring to life the floor puppets –animals in traditional Russian costumes. The bright, sunny, cheerful colors of the scenery and costumes help create the atmosphere of the magical forest. With originally composed music and lyrics, this musical is fun for all ages.
