Feeling in the mood for a tale with a twist? Head over to the Puppet Showplace Theatre for "Father's Goose's Tales." In this spin on a classic, there's trouble in the nursery -- Mother Goose has taken the day off and Father Goose must do all her chores, including the storytelling. Try as he might, Father Goose just can't get the stories right. "Father Goose's Tales" is a modern retelling of nursery rhymes, stories and children's songs that will entertain the whole family. The performance by Nappy's Puppets features live acting and shadow puppets. Thurs., June 13, 10:30 a.m.; Fri., June 14, 10:30 a.m.; Sat., June 15, 10:30 a.m. & 1 p.m. Ages 3 and up. $12; members, $8. Reservations recommended. Puppet Showplace Theatre, 32 Station St., Brookline. www.puppetshowplace.org
