Caterpillar Puppets@South

Caterpillar Puppets is the artistic collaboration of Joe and Ronna Leon.  These long-time favorite puppeteers return to Berkeley Public Library  to perform the bilingual show "Aztec Pinocchio."  It is the story of Maldo the Magician and how he turns his little marionette boy alive using a butterfly for a heart. One of the first things the lively puppet boy, Piñata, must do is somehow rescue his "father" Maldo from the deadly spell placed on him by an evil magician.
