Based on the true story of “Lonesome George,” explorers will journey to the far-off Galapagos Islands for the uplifting eco-fable tale of the not-so-little tortoise and the islands he called home. Galapagos George, the Little Tortoise That Could features vibrant appearances from marine Iguanas, Sally Lightfoot crabs, blue-footed booby birds, sea lions and other remarkable animals that inhabit the archipelago. Playing at Center for Puppetry Arts March 19-31, the show is presented by puppeteer Heidi Rugg of Richmond’s Barefoot Puppets and features rod, shadow and hand puppetry!
