Space Hippo

The Wishes Mystical Puppet Company—John Hirsch Mainstage

This company has been around for a few years and if you’re familiar with their work, they bring life to shadow puppets by manipulating cut-outs onto a screen. There’s normally a ludicrous plot that acts as the basis to comedy.

The formula stays true to Space Hippo (obviously). The cute puppets and execution brings reminiscence to childhood memories of adults relating monster stories. This show features plenty of monsters,
bolstered by the sinister voice and evil laughs. Fun as always and well worth a watch!
