The Gottabees present “Lollipops for Breakfast”
Time: 3:30 pm-4:30 pm
Puppets! Original music! A Tiny Bit of Acrobatics! Adventure and Invention! The Gottabees started making super fun theater for families in 2013 with the creation of Squirrel Stole My Underpants and its follow-up, Lollipops for Breakfast, in 2015. They have since been selling out venues and inspiring homemade puppet shows throughout the US, Canada, and Europe. They aim to inspire community, connection, and autonomy by providing an outlet for families to giggle, gasp, sigh, and cheer in forty-five minutes or less. The Gottabees’ stories reflect children’s everyday aspirations, concerns, and emotional experiences. Their wordless approach to storytelling removes language barriers and activates different aspects of their audience’s imagination. The result is a poetic, nonlinear story that surprises audiences.
Can you have for breakfast? You can’t! But today, Sylvie decides she’s going to break that rule, even if it means she has to make her own amazingly perfect lollipop from scratch. Come along as she and her trusty pet bird search for missing ingredients, wrestle with giant candy machines, and get lost in a magical pop-up cookbook. A marvelous concoction of friendship, invention and adventure for ages 3 and up.
