The Puppetry Arts Institute presents “Chanticleer the Rooster,” performed by the Magical Moonshine Theatre, at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. April 16. The Puppetry Arts Institute is located at 11025 E. Winner Road in Independence.

Chanticleer the Rooster lives in a happy barnyard with many animal friends. All is well until he is tricked by a hungry fox. The entire barnyard tries to save Chanticleer, but he manages to outwit the fox all by himself. Based on classic medieval literature by Geoffrey Chaucer, this beloved tale is brought to life with puppets, live music and loads of fun. Kelmscott Chaucer Toy Theatre Project is fiscally sponsored by the McCune Foundation.
