Showcasing his famous rod puppets called "Foamies," Hobey Ford turns the entire theater into a performance area to explore the amazing world of animals from a variety of realistic, environmental, and mythical points of view.
What's life like underwater with dolphins and whales, in the sky with birds and butterflies, and roaming the earth with wolves and a menagerie of other animals?
Popular puppeteer Hobey Ford has all sorts of answers when he brings the Family Theater roaring to life with Animalia. Together with his team of adorable "Foamies," Hobey makes animals of all sorts emerge in movement and music to form a full-on puppet ballet. Watch as the habits and habitats of the world's mightiest beasts and tiniest bugs come into furry focus right before your eyes.
