The Lion’s Whiskers
Artist: Catskill Puppet Theatre
Program Availability: In-Person
This story is based on an Ethiopian folktale in which a stepmother, desperate to win the heart of her husband’s little boy, consults a wise man. The wise man tells her that she will gain her stepson’s affection only by plucking a wild lion’s whiskers. The show—about courage, love, and patience—features masks, puppets, and original songs.
