About the Show: Emus, crocodiles and frogs -- oh my!

Experience the magic of 'The Land Down Under' in this performance inspired by Aboriginal folktales.

Learn more 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 get invited onstage to help bring the water back!

This show is recommended for everyone 4 and up.

Content is gentle, engaging, and informative.

About the Performer: Having spent most of her early childhood barefoot in Hawaii, it only seemed natural that Heidi Rugg would name her company Barefoot Puppet Theatre.

Performing barefoot is very fun but it's also very useful for operating the foot pedal sound system her husband engineered.

Barefoot Puppet Theatre began miles away from Hawaii, though, in Richmond, Virginia.

Heidi founded the company in 1997 after apprenticing as a puppet builder with Handemonium Puppets in Washington, D.C.

In 2001, with a growing touring schedule and a growing family, her husband Sam Rugg joined the company to help with building stages, managing accounts, and handling the technical side of lighting and sound.
