The Shaking Ray Levi Society will present Billy Goats Gruff and Other Stuff, a puppet show, on Sunday, Sept. 17, at 6:30 p.m., doors open at 6 p.m.  The performance will be at Wayne-O-Rama, 1800 Rossville Ave., #108.  Admission is free.  There is limited seating and kids are welcome to bring a floor mat. 

Review for Billy Goats Gruff and Other Stuff: 

In this one-man performance utilizing hand, rod, and glove puppets, David Stephens (All Hands Productions) retells classic fairy tales as well as telling a few of his own original tales. You'll see what happens when three billy goats try to cross over a bridge belonging to a greedy troll in "The Three Billy Goats Gruff."  Parker Pig encounters some good luck when he stumbles over a watering can in a retelling of "The Three Little Pigs." One of Mr. Stephens' original stories, "The Two Farmers," involves Farmer Frick and Farmer Frack and how they learn to work together to make a pot of stew. All this, plus the antics of some silly chickens, in "Billy Goats Gruff and Other Stuff." 

Originally developed in 2001, this show has entertained both children and their parents since that time. The Center for Puppetry Arts hosted an eight-week run of over 100 virtually sold-out performances of this production in 2002. Since then, the Center has hosted two equally successful revivals in 2004 and 2007. In 2005, this show was honored by receiving a Citation of Excellence from UNIMA-USA (Union Internationale de la Marionette): the equivalent of an Academy Award in the puppetry world.
