Suggested grade levels: Kdg-4

Celebrate the magical life cycle of the Monarch butterfly as larger-than-life puppetry is used to illustrate the microscopic world of insects. This production offers a magnified look at metamorphosis through the eyes of Mari the Monarch as she grows from a tiny egg to a beautiful butterfly! Hudson Vagabond Puppets, with support from the Jim Henson Foundation, incorporate dance and narration and bunraku-style puppetry to illustrate how Mari survives and thrives with the help of many friends.
