Getting to know Dark from "Switch on the NIght"

 After the performance of "Switch on the Night", some children expressed that they were afraid of the puppets. We had a guest visit from 'Dark". Children were able to see, touch and manipulate the puppet. "Dark" was big, yet fragile. How wonderful that the children experienced the impact of visual arts, music, poetry and drama.
