Rabbit Tales Press Release

Rabbit Tales
A tobacco prevention puppet show

RABBIT TALES is a tobacco prevention puppet show concentrating on the reasons why elementary students should not smoke or chew tobacco. Cassandra is a nasty bunny who wants to be Queen of Warren on the Green.  She steals Skvang the Dragon’s golden egg while Skvang is off looting the nearest village. Cassandra knows how to cast a spell to make King Peter’s sit on the egg until it hatches.  Then King Peter will be her slave.  But Cassandra is having a terrible time.  Since she smokes, she cannot carry the egg without losing her breath and needing to rest.  Her servant Gertrude who chews tobacco is in no better shape.  So they must convince Honey Bunny, Cassandra’s step daughter to carry the egg back to the palace for them and fast!  Meanwhile, if Skavang doesn’t get the golden egg back before it hatches, his wife Wisteria will make scales fly!  Skavang of course knows who has stolen the egg.  He has a great nose and instantly smells smoky Cassandra and slips on Gert’s spit.  So the chase is on!  Wizard Youngblood, King Peter (the object of Cassandra’s affection) and Honey Bunny are all involved in the mix-up.  Will the egg hatch or be the trick to allow Cassandra to marry the King?

RABBIT TALES is followed by a Question and Answer session so that the students can discuss the show. There is a PDF that the teachers or students can download. This PDF includes several classroom activities including a How-To have the students write their own Tobacco Prevention puppet show.   It includes instructions on how to write a script, how to make the puppets, and how to direct the show for the best results. There is also a discussion guide and how to write and perform an Anti-Tobacco rap. The PDF is full of fun educational classroom activities to re-enforce the Anti- Tobacco message.

RABBET TALES is presented by Dragons Are Too Seldom Puppet Productions.  Master puppeteer, Markie Scholz, and “the Dragons” have been touring the United States and Europe performing for well over thirty years.  Markie’s fast paced shows are full of fun and excitement.  She and her puppets travel between 30,000 and 70,000 miles a year, performing for schools, libraries, festivals, special happenings and any other events that need some laughter and joy.
