performed by ACA Resident Artist, Edwin Salas Acosta


A charming and uplifting puppet performance in which a Snail that loses its shell meets a Slug who tries to prove Snail is actually better off without it.  They begin a journey to determine whether life with or without a shell is better, which puts them in situations sometimes frightening, sometimes funny, but ultimately leads them to friendship.  It is a 30-minute interactive experience.

*Meant to be enjoyed by ages 4-8
