Join award-winning Portland family performer Red Yarn and his lovable animal puppets on an exploration of space … shared space, personal space and safe space, that is!

From forest to field to farm, the Critters love to sing, dance and celebrate. But how do they keep themselves and each other safe when there’s a wild animal party going on? Through energetic folk songs, engaging puppet routines and interactive storytelling, Red Yarn and the Critters will help kids learn about respect, boundaries and safety in an inclusive community.

Come join the party!
