waiting for the puppet show

waiting for the puppet show (the Dragon Who Wasn't) in the shade

Waiting to watch the puppet show “The Dragon Who Wasn’t” at Children’s Fairyland. Sitting in the shade as its eighty degrees today. Welcome Summer!

The Dragon Who Wasn’t May 30 – July 14.
An original tale written by fledgling puppeteer Frank Oz in the 1960s. Written by the teen for Oakland’s famous Vagabond Puppet program, it is a funny tale about a magical kingdom in desperate need of its own fire-breathing dragon. Based loosely on the classic cartoons of Jay Ward’s Fractured Fairy Tales. Puppets by Jesse Vail of Fool Moon Puppetry, and scenery by Annie Wong.
