East Meadow, NY - August 14, 2015 - Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano announced today that Hudson Vagabond Puppets will present a puppet theater show at Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre in Eisenhower Park on Sunday, August 30th at 2:00 p.m.

Hudson Vagabond Puppets consists of professional dancers and actors, performing with giant puppets. Their troupe performs educational and entertaining puppet theater for children and their families, both in the community and in schools. All of their performance content is designed to fit into New York State’s school curriculum – not just in the arts but also the sciences, social studies, language arts and literacy. Their puppeteers borrow from the traditional Japanese Bunraku style of puppetry. Clad in black, their performers become shadows behind the colorful and larger than life size puppets.
