The Amazing Story Machine is the recipient of a 2018 Jim Henson Foundation Family Grant, and is the latest innovative puppet show from Doppelskope.

The Grimm family is on the verge of presenting their amazing new Story Machine, which runs on steam and dreams and promises to revolutionize how stories are told and how people connect. When their fabulous contraption malfunctions, they have to invent a new way of storytelling on the spot, using puppets and help from the audience. 

The Grimms explore some of their favorite fairy tales, including The Hare and the Hedgehog, Hansel and Gretel, and The Brave Little Tailor. The show features multiple styles of puppetry, including tabletop puppetry, object theatre, and shadow puppetry, as well as live music, projections, and physical comedy. Geared towards ages 4 and up, and fun for all!
