Swazzle Now Taking Bookings for Summer 2013

Swazzle Now Taking Bookings for Summer 2013

For more than 10 years, Swazzle has created new and entertaining puppet shows perfectly tailored to each year?s library summer reading program theme. Swazzle has taken audiences under the ocean with Water Color, to the far reaches of outer space with Space Bugs, and to international destinations like Mexico with Dream Carver. This year they?ll take young readers on an adventure to ancient Greece, as Swazzle presents a comical retelling of the classic Aesop?s fable The Grasshopper and the Ants.

Whether you?re participating in the CLA theme (?Reading Is So Delicious?), the CSLP theme (?Dig into Reading?) or your own summer reading program theme, The Grasshopper and the Ants is the perfect show for your library.

The Grasshopper and the Ants features a fresh and funny script with lots of laughs for audience members of every age. It?s brought to life by handcrafted puppets and performances by professionally trained puppeteers who have worked with top names in entertainment, including Disney, The Muppets and The Jim Henson Company.

Swazzle co-founders and creative directors Sean and Patrick Johnson set out to create fun, dynamic puppet shows that entertain as well as educate. In The Grasshopper and the Ants, young audiences will be introduced to a classic story and laugh along with the fun-loving Grasshopper as he learns the value of dedication and hard work.

The Grasshopper and the Ants cost $325 per performance, with no additional fee for mileage. The 45-minute puppet show includes a behind-the-scenes demonstration in which every member of the audience will get to try their hand at being a puppeteer.

Swazzle is now taking bookings for summer 2013. To schedule a pupppet show at your library, please call 866-792-9953 or e-mail
