Animalia is the quintessential children's favorite!

Geared for pre-K through 6th graders and their families, Hobey Ford’s show explores the magical world of animals. This performance features Hobey’s original “Foamies” puppets carved from large blocks of foam with intricate mechanical design that gives each puppet realistic movements.

Hobey breaks out of the traditional puppet theater booth turning the whole theater into his performance stage. Animalia introduces the audience to the metamorphosis of a butterfly and a tadpole, various ecological systems and endangered animals.
