#1 New Postcard SwimmyVermont’s PuppeTree brings to the stage a stunning 40 minute production of Leo Lionni’s classic children’s book Swimmy. This fully authorized multimedia production blends shadow puppets, animation and projections performed by the PuppeTree’s founder Ann Legunn. A visual and musical treat Swimmy features a classical music score that draws us into the undersea world and introduces children to lyrical work of Debussy.

The companion piece, Swimmer, is an original work inspired by Lionni’s wonderful story, set on a picturesque New England river. A young girl recognizes the threats to her beloved river and learns to organize the people that live along it’s banks to change their behavior and preserve the magic of the river. Swimmer boasts an original music score by Patrick Ross a fifth generation Vermont fiddler and composer. Visual artists, musicians, puppeteers and craftsman have worked over 3 years to bring this beautiful and inspiring show to life.

We require 10 feet behind the 7-foot wide screen and a 7-foot ceiling (a corner is fine). Children can sit on the floor since the screen is elevated. Audience is limited to 100 per 40 minute show. Swimmy/Swimmer is ideal for 3 – 12 year olds and their families. A complete blackout is unnecessary.
