GALAPAGOS GEORGE, THE LITTLE TORTOISE THAT COULD Plays Center for Puppetry Arts, Now thru 4/7

Journey to the far-off Galapagos Islands and meet George - a giant Galapagos Tortoise and the last of his kind. Watch George grow up in this show brimming with creatures: sea turtles, lizards, hungry goats, sea lions, and even dancing blue-footed birdies. Watch out for the pirates, though! In this uplifting eco-fable, solo puppeteer Heidi Rugg shares the true story of this famous, not-so-little tortoise and the islands he calls "home."
Performance will be: tonight, March 19 - April 7, 2013. Tuesday - Friday: 10 a.m. & 11:30 a.m. Saturday: 11 a.m., 1 p.m. & 3 p.m. Sunday: 1 p.m. & 3 p.m. at the Center for Puppetry Arts/ 1404 Spring Street NW/ Atlanta, GA 30309
