Join Mr. Bunni, a door-to-door vegetable salesman, as he journeys beneath the earth, into the sea, and even to outer space in search of carrot customers. Will he ever sell enough 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 colorful paper puppets and plenty of audience interaction. After the show there will be a meet-and-greet up close of the puppets and performers for children who are interested!
