JESSICA’S FRIENDS is a participatory puppet play presented by Judith O’Hare of the YOU AND ME PUPPETS and your children.  It is a full theater production that includes children from the audience who manipulate rod puppets and marionettes within the context of the story.  It is designed for young children aged 3-9 and presents ideas and concepts that are part of the early childhood and early primary experience.

     The story is about a princess who wants a friend. She “wishes" for a friend and her mother tells her that she will “command" someone to be her friend. BUT when her toys come to life, she learns from them that “ You gotta be a friend to get a friend". You can’t just “ wish" for a friend or “ command" a friend. You have to care and you have to share.
