Tears of Joy

Puppeteers from Tears of Joy Theatre bring to life a traditional Palestinian fairy tale that simultaneously introduces audiences to Middle Eastern folk culture and reinforces the power of giving to others. Adapted from the book Sitti and the Cats by Sally Bahous, this show delves playfully into the consequences of both greed and good-deeds when Malika, queen of cats, rewards a good Samaritan for her selflessness but confounds a selfish neighbor who tries to trick her way to fortune. Recommended ages: upper elementary and above. Please note that seating is limited.
