Robert Rogers Puppet Show Presents “The Nightingale”
Byram Shubert Branch

A powerful Chinese Emperor has a soft spot in his heart for a humble little bird from the forest, and for the music that she sings. When a mechanical nightingale is given to him as a gift, his affections quickly change, and the real bird is shunned. Hans Christian Andersen’s affectionate story shows just how important true friendship can be. Each year, the Robert Rogers Puppet Company travels across the United States and around the world presenting a delightfully wide-ranging repertoire of plays for children and adults. Original stories, adaptations of classic literature, concert pieces, and operas have made up an incredible collection of productions, intended for audiences of all ages, and for venues both large and small.
