Each show features 2-4 puppet characters in theatrical scenes, focusing on disability awareness, anti-bullying issues, and character development. The two teaching artists presenting the shows encourage audience participation through facilitated dialogue, allowing the students in the audience to learn from interacting directly with the puppet characters.
