Tears of Joy Puppet Theater Prek-3rd Grades
The Vain Little Mouse - two mice

Tears of Joy Theatre’s Emily Alexander, a long-time children’s theater star in Portland, uses puppets to tell these fun, poignant stories to Pre-3 audiences.

La Ratonicita Presumida (The Vain Little Mouse)

A bilingual (presented in both Spanish and English) folktale from Venezuela, our tiny heroine thinks she is much too fine to accept the proposal of a common mouse - as in love with her as he may be. Instead, she sets her sights on ‘worthier’ matches, like the sun, the wind, and the mountain. Yet her search for a perfect suitor brings her right back to the romantic little mouse who first proposed. Only now, La Ratoncita has learned to see her admirer’s true worth, not to mention the importance of being humble. This production features Venezuelan folk music, adorable puppets, and a costumed performer.

These are in-school shows that last about 45 minutes including a puppet meet and greet!
