About the Artist
Old-fashioned but fresh as the ears on a katydid''s legs, handpuppets interact with the audience during these lively one-woman performances by Nancy Tyndall. Inspired by a love for the folkart traditions of puppetry, she brings her own ingenuity and imagination to these original productions. The repertoire features dramatizations of folklore and fairytales from world literature. Says Nancy, ''I want to help children grow to be Big and Rich- Big enough to give and Rich in things that have no price.''
