The Jester's Box ia one of the Blue Sky Puppet Theatre's most charming and unusual show! The jester, Ralph, is off to see King NFAFETMHL, the king who Never Found Anything Funny Enough To Make Him Laugh. If Ralph can make him laugh, he will gain fame and gold. But, if he fails, he must endure a jester's greatest humiliation - getting hit with a pie! He makes camp outside the King's castle. After rehearsing his magic act, walking on a tightrope, and dancing on hot coals, Ralph lays down to take a nap before performing for the King. As Ralph sleeps, one of his rag dolls, "Freddie", comes to life. King NFAFETMHL shows up! Freddie proceeds to go through a series of hilarious tricks, making King NFAFETMHL roar with laughter in doing so!! This "Table Top" performance is a major stylistic departure from the rod puppets behind a 6ft curtain that we're famous for. This 35 minute presentation is an intimate show that is performed Bunraku style on a custom built table with the performer visible. It accommodates 150 amazed and delighted viewers of all ages.
