Based on the popular book Stellaluna by Janell Cannon, Stellaluna tells the tale of a baby bat. Stellaluna’s life is flitting along right on schedule–until an owl attacks her mother one night, knocking the bewildered batlet out of her mother’s loving grasp. The tiny bat is lucky enough to land in a nest of baby birds, but her whole world has just turned upside down. Literally. Stellaluna’s adoptive bird mom accepts her into her nest, but only on the condition that Stellaluna will act like a bird, not a bat. Anyone who has ever been asked to be someone they’re not will understand the conflicts–and possibilities–Stellaluna faces. This production features puppetry and live piano.
