Applefun Puppetry performing The Purple Pirate
*Temporary tattoo stand with Isabel Mazzotta!*
Emilie Mover was born in Montreal on a snowy November evening. She grew up in Toronto until moving to New York City in her teen years, where she began singing jazz with her father, Bob Mover, a renowned saxophone player familiar to jazz clubs on either side of the 49th parallel and overseas. Soon, she began writing her own compositions and has been doing so ever since. With the songs that comprise her diverse and delicate catalogue, her inherently simplistic and authentic approach to playing and writing is delicate, endearing, and echoes a depth of understanding of the great American songbook well beyond her years.
Mike Harding of Applefun Puppetry has performed thousands of shows at libraries, schools, and birthday parties. Mike studied Improvisational Comedy at Second City which adds a unique and spontaneous flavour to his shows. Applefun Puppetry Puppet Shows are characteristically interactive with a high degree of audience participation. The Purple Pirate: puppet show adventure on the high sea! Join the chase for the Great Purple Whale. Applefun Puppetry presents this 45-minute interactive program. Afterwards, everyone learns how to make a paper puppet to take home.
