About This Project

With your help we can bring 250 under-served children to see “Three Billy Goats Gruff” at the Tampa Theatre. Bluff, Fluff and Tuff Gruff must cooperate, communicate and negotiate to cross a bridge guarded by a Bully Troll. Each goat learns to believe in itself and say “I Can Do It!” Each child in the audience will learn by example to say “I Can Do It” and succeed.

Bits ‘N Pieces Puppet Theatre is dedicated to influencing the world of tomorrow by enchanting the children of today. Through the theatrical retelling of famous children’s stories, each with its own unique life lesson and moral, Bits 'N Pieces brings to life the magical wonderment of children’s fantasy and reinforces the core values long told and emphasized by our great storytellers.

Our project will serve 250 under-served K-2nd grade students who could not otherwise attend the program. With your assistance we will reach our fundraising goal and these children will see the performance at the Tampa Theatre on Tuesday, May 6, 2014 at 10:30 am. We will provide educational materials for classroom use tied to the Florida Core Curriculum. We will also provide workshop materials so the children may both see the show and then make a puppet to take home.

Bits ‘N Pieces Puppet Theatre creates original musicals performed with unique nine-foot-tall, glo-in-the-dark puppets, traditional characters and animated stage sets. The company annually tours across the United States and has been invited to perform in ten other countries. We invite your questions about the project and ways you can help us share the experience of live theatre with young people.
