That's Quite Absurd!

THE PAPER BAG PLAYERS THAT’S QUITE ABSURD! will have you laughing, singing, dancing--and sitting on the edge of your seat! This brand new show is packed with stories, songs, freewheeling dances, painting, audience participation, paper bag costumes and scenery -- and lots of adventure! It’s a funny, friendly, and thrilling hour of theater -- perfect for children ages 3 through 8, perfect for everyone!

The opening number, “Welcome to Friendly,” invites our audience into a fanciful town buzzing with charming characters, from an elephant riding a scooter to a giraffe in a car. A walking bell reminds the town--and audience--it’s time to dance! The friendly theme continues with “That’s Quite Absurd!” in which a girl and a bird meet on a park bench and become fast friends. The bird happily teaches his new friend how to fly. In “Sing To Me,” a giant seed only grows when it hears a special song. “Rise and Shine” follows the sun as he wakes up and prepares for work, punching in as the moon punches out. “A Girl Named Sam” uses paper, ink, and paint to tell the story of a young girl who goes fishing and gets more than she bargained for. Lots more surprises lie in wait in the hilarious and whimsical world of THE PAPER BAG PLAYERS THAT’S QUITE ABSURD!
