Incoming from outer space! Eighty-year-old Lillian’s pet monkey is back from space and trying to land on Earth. Follow her and her friend eight-year-old Howard as they rush to save the monkey! This resilient duo is determined to help their monkey friend back to safety. Lillian and Howard must face many set-backs, anxieties and lasers on this epic adventure. New York City-based puppeteers Liz Hara and Marta Mozelle MacRostie (a UConn Alumna) use table-top puppetry to illuminate the power of determination and hard work. With a focus on resilience and silly mustaches, this show is bound to please all ages!
