Earth welcomes child
Children from Jacobson Elementary School enjoyed a unique puppet show about the miracles of planet Earth on Feb. 24 inside the Rush City High School theatre. They snapped, clapped and laughed with Esther Ouray and Julie Boada, associate artists of In The Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre in Minneapolis. Their message to the children: “Everything in the universe is here to welcome each child,” described Ouray. The performance was based on the book, “On the Day You Were Born,” which was written and illustrated by Minnesota author Debra Frasier. After school, families were invited to a puppet-making workshop at the Rush City Public Library.
