    Family Puppet Show: The Snowflake Man

    The Puppet Showplace Theatre Presents: The Snowflake Man by Puppet Kabob

    About the Show:

    The story of "The Snowflake Man" is inspired by Wilson "Snowflake" Bentley. This self-educated farmer and scientist attracted world attention in 1885 when he became the first person to capture the image of a single snow crystal with a camera he connected to a microscope. "The Snowflake Man" is a unique trunk show of Czech-style marionettes and props backed by a pop-up book of water color paintings telling the story of "Snowflake" Bentley. This show combines art, science, and New England history to magical effect.

    The Snowflake Man was awarded a 2011 UNIMA Citation of Excellence. This show is sponsored in part by a Creation Grant from the Vermont Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.

    Recommended for ages 5 and up.
