A Puppet Passover
In this epic, interactive show, Passover songs are interspersed with an interactive telling of the Passover story. Kids bang their hammers, jump like frogs with Pharoh, dance with scarves, and play along on their own instruments. The whole family celebrates together as Moses and Miriam lead everyone across the red sea and into freedom! Dayenu!
