Event Details

The New Haven Free Public Library Children's Dept. invite you to:

 

Purple Rock Productions presents “The Basket Case”. Who or what is hiding in Basket City? Dolls, puppets, and many surprises are inside and outside the baskets.

 

The concept of OPPOSITES is played with at length. Opposites such as INSIDE and OUTSIDE are explored, with baskets sitting inside other baskets, and puppets coming OUT and going IN to baskets. Other opposites include EMPTY & FULL, GOING & COMING, and YOUNG & OLD.

 

The "missing person" in the story is the mother of a little puppet found deep inside one of the baskets.  Ideas of LOSING, SEARCHING and FINDING are folded within the story. COLORS are introduced throughout the story, making it a search for the color "missing from the rainbow" in addition to a search for a missing person.

 

Because the story is performed live, with live songs and movement, the narrative offers many opportunities for young children to engage physically as well as verbally.
