Leo Lionni's exquisitely crafted Caldecott Honor books are translated to puppet theatre through the gentle storytelling style which has earned international acclaim for Mermaid Theatre. Swimmy is a tiny fish who uses ingenuity to fend off danger. Frederick, a poetic mouse, makes everyday life an artful experience. A lovable inchworm shares his facility for measuring absolutely everything. The show features an assortment of innovative puppetry styles and imaginative lighting techniques as well as an original musical score.
