The Center for Puppetry Arts will introduce Harold and the Purple Crayon to the puppet stage April 2-May 26. Based on five of the books from Crockett Johnson's beloved series, the original production invites audiences to watch as a curious young boy discovers his power to create anything he can imagine, simply by drawing it with his oversized purple crayon. From enchanted gardens to the circus - even a wild ride to the moon - audiences will watch Harold create his fantastic world in real time on stage. 

In addition to meeting Harold, patrons can look forward to other delightful characters, including the Very Hungry Moose, the Deserving Porcupine, a circus clown and a space alien!
