For immediate release
Contact: Heather Loewenstein

Mother's Day for Mother Earth - Tenth Anniversary
StoneLion's Annual puppet show of ENORMOUS
proportions! StoneLion presents The Mermaid's Tail

Ten years and counting! StoneLion Puppet Theater
will celebrate Mother's Day with Kansas City's
largest community arts project and giant puppet
show, Mother's Day for Mother Earth. Larger than
life puppets, professional actors, dancers,
community participants and you will celebrate
spring on the lawn of The Nelson-Atkins Museum of
Art. This free event has attracted over 6000
audience members and grows annually. Viewers from
as far away as Sweden and Pakistan have joined our
local residents in a day of celebration for our
planet and families with puppets up to 20' tall.

This year's theme is all about water. The
Mermaid's Tail (Tale) follows the journey of a
giant plastic water bottle down a storm drain and
eventually out to sea. Who and what will be
effected? Over 100 community volunteers from age
2 years to 75 will perform alongside StoneLion's
professional troupe. Crescendo Conservatory from
Overland Park, KS is our featured partner
supplying over forty dancers to the cast. Bring
your picnic, set up a lawn chair, tour the museum,
make your own puppet at our craft tables and enjoy
the day.

Fact: Did you know Mother's Day started as Peace
Day protesting war? What better way to spend
Mother's Day than in the park with a beautiful and
timely puppet spectacle about protecting the
planet we live on for our children?
