I'd Rather Be a Hummingbird

StoneLion Puppet Theatre (Master Teaching Artist) (Lighton Prize) [ view artist bio ]


This enchanting rod puppet production is based on the folktale by Kenyan Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Wangari Maathai, who studied environmentalism in Kansas. StoneLion's new musical will transport you to a world where you realize it is not the size of the effort, but the fact you tried that matters. StoneLion has recreated Maathai's folktale using indigenous animals native to the Midwest. Little Nigel the beaver is unhappy he can't do everything the big beavers can do, but learns a valuable lesson when the forest catches on fire.
