Swazzle Brings Bilingual Musical Puppet Show to Orange County Schools

Swazzle Brings Bilingual Musical Puppet Show to Orange County Schools

Swazzle?s new bilingual, musical puppet show, Dream Carver, has been added to the 2011?2012 Arts Teach school assembly roster by the Segerstrom Center for the Arts (formerly the Orange County Performing Arts Center). The show is based on the book of the same name by Diana Cohn and illustrated by Amy Cordova.

Dream Carver tells the story of Mateo, a boy growing up in Oaxaca, Mexico whose father has taught him to carve small wooden toys in the traditional way. One day, as Mateo is sitting under a large tree, he dreams of fantastic, brightly colored animals. When he wakes up, he is impelled to bring them to life. Feeling that his father doesn?t support him in his creative endeavor, Mateo secretly sets out to create the animals he saw in his dream.

Through the experiences of the story’s hero, Dream Carver encourages young audiences to think creatively, try new things, and follow their dreams.

To schedule a performance at your school, please contact The Center?s Arts Teach at 714-556-2122 ext. 4310 or e-mail artsteach@SCFTA.org.
