The Hudson Vagabond Puppets bring to life two time-honored, classic tales in a larger-than-life puppetry and mask production. In Caps for Sale, traditional bunraku puppets perform the much-beloved story of the cap salesman who falls asleep under a tree and wakes up without his wares and in The Three Billy Goats Gruff, three increasingly large goats attempting to cross a bridge in defiance of a fearsome ogre. Meet the cast in the lobby after the show.
