Wrenegades: An Ecological Adventure
Circle Circle dot dot's world premiere is entertaining and educational. Ed Leopold, an ecologist whose life's mission is to save the cactus wren from extinction, is challenged head-on by encroaching urban development. At times weighed down by overly explanatory dialogue, the artistry of the puppetry and choreography save the production from being too pedantic. Hint: "vernal pools" are explained in the program, which may help in understanding why they are important when the dialogue fails to clarify. Overall, a fun producton for the whole family. Worth a try.
