Looking for another fun activity to occupy some winter vacation time? Head over to the Puppet Showplace Theatre in Brookline for a performance by Barefoot Puppets with their show based on traditional Aboriginal folktales. Learn about some truly unusual animals as a mother platypus tries to get her young one to sleep by sharing three stories from the Australian Dreamtime. In these "how and why" tales you'll learn how the emu became a flightless bird and why the platypus looks so strange. In the final story, you'll meet a giant, bloated, ocean-swallowing frog -- and perhaps you'll even be invited onstage to help get the water back. Emus, crocodiles and frogs -- oh, my! Sat., Dec. 29, 1 & 3 p.m.; Sun., Dec. 30, 1 & 3 p.m.; Mon., Dec. 31, 10:30 a.m. & 1 p.m. Ages 3 and up. $15. The Puppet Showplace Theatre, 32 Station St., Brookline.
