Library Boogie with Tom Knight
Tom Knight is back again with his vibrant collection of original songs and skits that will keep even the very youngest children waiting to see what happens next. While Tom sings to his original music tracks, puppets like Henry the Magician, the Little Elephant, Andy the Recycling Guy, and Allie the Alligator act out the stories of the songs. Tom Knight’s songs are easy to remember and fun to sing and most have a part for the audience, whether it is hand movements, dancing to the ‘Alligator Jump’ or just singing along.

"Aladdin" by Nancy Sander
The story of the boy who found the magic lamp is brought to the stage by Nancy Sander's Puppets with Pizazz. Alladin outwits a den of thieves and brings happiness to his own family in this famous tale.
Nancy Sander has been awarded The Martin Stevens Award of puppetry excellence. This award, under the auspices of the Puppeteers of America's Great Lakes Region, recognizes excellence in puppetry and puppet productions. Unlike many awards, this is a peer's choice award and is awarded only every other year. Children have been laughing and shouting during Sander's fast-paced, audience-participation shows for over twenty-five years.
