The Legend of Pufferfish Pat: A tall tale for mad times


InterAct Story Theatre brings schools a brand new tall tale from the Old West, looking at how we deal with anger and other big feelings. When Pat gets angry, he blows up like a Pufferfish, which gets him a new name and a reputation that he doesn't want. With the little town of Gravy Gulch heating up for the annual gravy cook off, it's more important than ever that he keep his cool! Where can he go to find folks who might understand? The play is performed by three actors appearing as a multitude of characters, with the whole audience becoming cowpokes and townspeople right from where they sit.

Be aware that "creating" a space by parking on the end of rows will put your car in a fire lane and you will be ticketed.
