“Cardboard Explosion!” brings four original stories to life using nothing but cardboard and the power of your imagination. With help from students and teachers in the audience, puppeteer Brad Shur transforms simple cardboard shapes into elaborate puppet characters, and then brings them to life right before your eyes. This fun, energetic, and highly interactive performance explores English Language Arts curricular topics including character, setting, plot, conflict, and resolution, as well as Social Emotional Learning as we learn to outsmart dragons, choose-your-own superpower, and train adorable animal sidekicks!
