    The Snowflake Man
    July 16th, 3-4 PM @ Boston Common: The Lily Pad
    Presented by Puppet Showplace Theatre
    Created and Performed by Puppetkabob (Sarah Frechette)
    The story of "The Snowflake Man" is inspired by Wilson "Snowflake" Bentley, a farmer and self-taught scientist who attracted world attention with his photomicrographs of snow crystals and other water formations such as clouds, rain, dew and frost. "The Snowflake Man" swings audiences into the historic 1920s through creative storytelling, intricately designed Czech-style marionettes, and a striking pop-up book of watercolor scenery. This UNIMA-USA award winning show combines art, science, and a little-known piece of New England history to magical effect!
