Kasperl Puppet Theater

Deutsches Haus presents an original play in the beloved German hand puppetry tradition with live accordion music by Lauren Brody! Just like its British counterpart "Punch" and the French "Guignol," the German "Kasperl" is a classic staple of children's entertainment. In Kasperl in New York, Kasperl and Gretel discover surprising traces of German-American history when they visit his grandmother in New York City. But danger lurks in the candy store...

Deutsches Haus and its in-house puppet theater present Kasperl and his friends for the first time to an English speaking audience. Deutsches Haus Kasperltheater: Martin Rauchbauer (DH Director), Andrea Pieper-Wheelock (DH Head of Kids Program), and special guest Tine Kindermann.
