Genre: Kids, Musical
A Balinese fairytale with music written and directed by Fulbright reciepient Jennifer Goodlander

ADVENTURES OF THE PUPPET PRINCESS follows Putu, a troublesome tomboy, and Nyoman, the neighbor boy that her father, a master puppeteer (dalang), is teaching about the art of puppets. Putu loves to play with the puppets and make up stories, but in Bali girls can't be puppeteers, or can they? When Putu and Nyoman get lost in the jungle, they encounter fantastical creatures who share stories through dance, comedy and masked drama. But their only way out of the jungle is to create a puppet show for a witch (layak)! Reluctant to work together, can they set aside their animosity to perform a puppet show magical enough to impress the witch and get home? Is all that seems scary and evil also good?
