AUNT IRENE’S VARIETY SHOW – all ages
A puppet show for all ages, Aunt Irene’s show is filled with music and fantastic variety acts. See a singing sloth, the mysterious Linked Lizard, Rosita the flamenco dancer and Wanda the Wizard. Things seem to go awry as a needy witch casts spells to compete with acts and musical numbers. Live music by classically trained guitarist Matthew Ocone. Songs in Spanish, English, Russian and French (other languages available as well).
This show is tailored for different audiences, we have very kid-friendly versions as well as more adult acts. Just get in touch and tell us what you’re looking for!
Check out our singing sloth recorded for Ch 13, PEGASYS in Ithaca.
This project is made possible, in part, with funding from the Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County!
WANDA AND THE 3 POTIONS – all agesWanda the Wizard has always been very helpful on the set of Aunt Irene’s variety show, but her new potions are making a magical mess. See the singing Ms. Lips, a many eyed monster, a celebrity giraffe and more! Live music by classically trained Matthew Ocone.
ALFONSO’S MINIATURE ORCHESTRA – all ages
Alfonso lives with his grandmother in Southern Spain and isn’t allowed to study music. When he falls in love with the guitar, his only help comes from a flamenco-dancing gypsy who teaches him the secrets of the instrument. A great intro to classical music for kids. Live music by classically trained guitarist Matthew Ocone. Featuring music from Spanish Masters, including Grenados, Albeniz and Tárrega.
This show uses hand puppets as well as shadow puppetry and was made possible, in part, by a grant from the Community Arts Partnership.
LilySilly has puppet fun for your town’s parade or festival. Check out our giant parade sloth, and bird creature:
YES AROUND THE WORLD – For kids K-3
Check out this LilySilly original show we call “Yes Around the World” in which a purple puppet travels around the world in his hot air balloon on a quest to say “yes”. “Everywhere I go, people always say no” he concludes. “No, no, no – what a mess – I’m gonna say ‘yes’!”, he sings from up in the sky. Everyone learns to say all kinds of yeses as we travel from country to country.
This show features jazz standards and songs from around the world in different languages. Languages include: Russian, Spanish, Swahili, French, German and a duck quacking in Portuguese. Get in touch with us for more info.
