Kerfuffle creates theater and dance performances specifically for children six years old and younger.  They just completed a workshop co-production with the Rose theater in three public Omaha Parks called “Goose and Gert” and next up is a new play called “Firefly,” featuring shadow puppets in a 14 foot yurt dome.

Ashley Laverty is the founding Artistic Director and she joins Mike Hogan “Live & Local” to discuss this unique children’s theatre experience.
