Show Description:
Join Mr. Bunni, a door-to-door vegetable salesman, as he journeys beneath the earth, into the sea, and even to outer space in search of carrot customers. Will he ever sell enough to please his boss? Or will his new friends teach him a valuable lesson about being true to himself? This imaginative table-top performance features live music, colorful paper puppets, and plenty of audience interaction.

Table Top Puppets, Live Music. Recommended for ages 3 and up.
