Pippi at The Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre

Pippi is a fresh retelling of the classic “Pippi Longstocking” tales by Astrid Lindgren, adapted for the stage by award winning playwright, Zakiyyah Alexander. The production features nearly two dozen, hand-made marionettes crafted by the expert puppeteers from the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre.

In addition to the brilliant artistry of the production, kids and families will enjoy the incredible adventures of quick-witted and super-strong Pippi as she overcomes bullies and burglars, all while fending off social conventions that threaten to prevent her friends from being creative.

Pippi is directed by Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre's Artistic Director Bruce Cannon, with original set design by Kevin Roach and a dynamic score from Darryl Kojak.
