The musical puppet theatre production "The Little Snowman and Sunflower" by Make Friends with Puppet was successfully held in 2010. To continue the romantic fairy tale, the group will continue the innocent childhood friendship of the story in January.
The tale sees snow coming to make flowers become even more brilliant. In the story, a sudden blizzard leads to a touching and genuine friendship between a little snowman and a sunflower. A simple commitment leads the little snowman to begin a journey to trace the sun, and he comes to believe that it is destiny to face parting and a reunion. If he commits to his promise, a reunion can still be expected.
The vivid puppets will be manipulated by skillful puppeteers and original music will be used to bring the audience an unforgettable experience. Don't miss this chance to see a genuine puppet show.
