'The Carrot Salesman,' Brookline, April 17-19

Just in time for Easter, here's a bunny show unlike any other you've seen. Head to the Puppet Showplace Theatre for "The Carrot Salesman," and join Mr. Bunni, CarrotSalesman_robot.jpga door-to-door vegetable salesman, as he journeys beneath the earth, into the sea, and even to outer space in search of new customers. Will he ever sell enough carrots to please his boss? Or will his new friends teach him a valuable lesson about being true to himself? This imaginative table-top performance features live music, colorful 2D paper puppets, and plenty of audience interaction. The show is presented by Brad Shur, a versatile puppeteer who has created and performed characters made of everything from pixels to papier mache. As the Artist in Residence at Puppet Showplace Theatre he performs regularly and teaches puppetry classes to students of all ages, from pre-K to adults.
