The Story of Frog Belly Rat Bone
How do you take a didactic childrens book whose most intriguing ingredient is fantastical illustration and make it into a stimulating theatrical performance? Get the Rogue Artists Ensemble to turn on their Hyper-Theater, a blend of puppetry, elaborate costuming, dance, music and video projections that can transform even the simplest of stories into something larger than life. Witness the ultra-visual entertainment first hand as RAE takes on Timothy Basil Erings childrens book, The Story of Frog Belly Rat Bone (about a boy who creates a monster out of trash), and transfigures the Samueli stage into the magical lands of the story.
