"Trickster Tales"
Hand Puppets

The classic characters of the Italian Commedia Del'Arte come to life in this comic blending of two funny fables: "The Three Wishes" and "Stone Soup". These masked puppets tell how Arlecchino (Harlequin) wants to marry Colombina, but their employer, the greedy Pantalone, keeps putting obstacles in their way. Arlecchino has to find out how to get enough food for the wedding banquet as well as making sure there is enough wood for the hearth. All without it costing Pantalone a cent! And...when he frees a trapped wizard from a tree who gives him three wishes, things really get out of hand! But a happy ending is assured, and Pantalone learns a valuable lesson. Based on ethnic folk tales. Suitable for all ages.
